Exciting news!

I'm so excited to share the news.....


I was thrilled to get a an email from Chrissy Larson inviting me to join their design team! I've always loved using sketches for scrapbooking and card making, so I'm really looking forward to designing for CAS(E) this Sketch. Click here to see the other designers who've been added to the team.

Even though I don't officially start until next Thursday, Sept. 5th, I decided to make a card with this week's sketch-- Sketch #43 to share with you....


Here's my card:


I was inspired by the Wplus9 Monday Mood Board #19 to make my card.


I used Papertrey Ink card stock and ink, as well as two PTI stamps-- the flourish under my sentiment is from Modern Wood Mats and the red chevron stripe is from Live Love Life. I also used my new Notched Banner die to diecut my banners. The jar stamp and die is from Lawn Fawn and the floral stamps & dies and sentiment stamp are from Wplus9's Fresh Cut Florals.

I'm also linking up this card to Fusion #16:


.... and to this week's Simons Says Challenge: Anything Goes.


Thanks for looking!

Congratulations on your design team appointment, Leigh. It's something I struggle with, but I think I need to 'practice' working with sketches more often. I'll definitely be checking out the challenges. Love how you've used several different stamp sets together for your card. The Wplus9 Fresh Cut Florals has been on my wish list for some time now - I've seen you use it often and I always like the look!!
