JAI #83 - Sketch Challenge

It's sketch challenge time over a Just Add Ink this week.  This is what Bron came up with.

And this is my take on it.

I was inspired by last week's, use something from your stash challenge.  I found this DSP when I was digging out the piece I used for last year's challenge and was really surprised to see how well it went with SU's Rich Razzleberry.  I was almost a perfect match and I've had it for at least 8 years (and never used it).  I was also pleased to see how well Certainly Celery matched as well.  The doily is one that I picked up at the party supply shop across the road from my work.  The just leaves the sentiment.  There's a bit of a funny story behind this sentiment.  This is one of the very first stamps I bought when I first started stamping.  I remember telling my friend at the time, that if I had a 'Happy Birthday' sentiment and a 'Merry Christmas' sentiment, that I would pretty much be 'set' in my stamping needs.  I also very foolishly, said that I would be able to keep all of my crafting stuff in a 12" x 12" square craft tote.  Oh my, how delusional was I.  It's laughable really, when you look at how much stuff I now own.

Well, that's it from me today.  Be sure to check out what what the rest of the Design Team have come up with.

Cool card Jo. Love that paper!

Haha I remember thinking much the same as you. A couple of basic sentiment stamps and I'm done. No need for all the other rubber. Now I'm busting out of the ROOM I have it all in.

I always struggle with how to use diagonal stripes Jo but this looks great! Your story made me laugh - I started out with a box about 12" by 12" too needless to say my stash is somewhat larger now - lol!
