A Little Note

Yesterday, Denise and I did our fun timed challenge again.

We are addicted apparently! lol

(The first layout you see on here is hers. It is a layout of her ds at Christmas)

We used a Sketchy Thursday's Sketch from their current challenge.

My ds picked the "4 things" this time. The 4 things he picked are:





As soon as I saw this sketch I knew what I wanted to do with it.

I received a new stamp set from Crafter's Companion. It is the S.W.A.L.K. Rubber Stamp Collection 3 set called "A Little Note". It debuts on their site on April 7th.

It is super sweet looking and I thought it would be perfect on a layout of my dd.

I used some Tim Holtz paper - Vintage Shabby (that music note paper is fab!) and some My Minds Eye paper - Spectrums Cool by Jen Wilson.

I stamped and colored my stamped image and fussy cut her out. I arranged my papers and added my photo. I printed out the title on vellum and attached it to the lo with some blingy brads.

I stamped a swirl then added a bling swirl and some bling hearts. I used pop dots under the Stamped little girl to give her dimension. And last but not least...my fav....stickles. I almost always use some stickles on all of my layouts. ha

I really had fun with this challenge. And I loved working with that adorable stamped image. (so cute!)

I was so happy that this one turned out better than the one I did on Saturday. I worked on it up to the last second but at least this time I was happy with the end result.

I have it posted today over at Crafter's Companion Informational blog. I plan to enter it over at Frosted Design in their bling challenge and at Simon Says Stamp and Show's Anything but a card challenge. And also at Charisma Cardz Challenge's Bling Challenge.

I'm also sharing this card I made with some left over scraps that were on my scrap desk. It came together super quick. And I really like it. It is very clean and simple.
