JAI #80 - Sketch Challenge


It's Friday (YAY!!) and that means it challenge time over at JAI.  This week we have a sketch challenge, brought to you by Bron, check it out

Bron originally called it a Pocket Card with a flourish, and this is my interpretation of it

I've made some packaging for a little block of chocolate.

I must admit, I'm quite proud of this because I made the packaging all by myself, based off a little box of complimentary mints I received at one of our Regional seminars.  It was a lot easier than I thought, and it took me less time to make the box than it did to stamp it, which isn't that suprising when you look at the quality of stamping here.  Not the best, I must say.  A lot of the credit has to go to my score board though, it made it super easy.

Do you like the colour of the cardstock  - it's the new In Colour, Wisteria Wonder.  I think it's gorgeous.  Do you like the stamp I've used??  That is the new Parlour Prints background stamp that will be available to purchase on September 1, 2011.  I've stamped it in Versamark and embossed using clear embossing powder

The sentiment is from Just Believe and has been stamped in Wisteria Wonder.  So are you excited to see what else is coming up in the new Stampin' Up! catalog - not long to wait now!

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team have come up with, lots of gorgeous inspiration for you!

You are a clever chick to make this template up and then stamp it with that beautiful background stamp. Wisteria Wonder is definitely a pretty shade.
