Inspirational Card Sketches - ICS98



Hello! Sorry I've been quiet for a few days... Between another snow and ice storm here in MA and my son coming down with strep throat I've been a little preoccupied! Luckily, we were able to see his doctor today and get a prescription so I hope he will be feeling better soon!

This is going to be a brief post, but I just wanted to let you know about a fabulous Sassy Studio Designs sponsorship over at Inspirational Card Sketches! For your chance to win four SSD digital images of your choice, just create something based on the above sketch and link it up over on the ICS blog before January 24th! It's as easy as that!

For my card, I used another of the new images from the Blast from the Past collection. She's called Sock Hop Sweetie 2, and she was so much fun to work with! I knew what I was going to do as soon as I saw the sketch! This was one of those times when I was truly inspired! I used a variety of techniques on this card - dry embossing, distressing, and paper piercing. I even colored one of the pearls with my Prismacolor markers! It ended up looking suspiciously like a Valentine's Day card, didn't it? But I just had to use those yummy looking Basic Grey designer papers, though!

Thanks for looking and hope you are having a wonderful week so far!
