Sparkle and Shine Challenge #2

There's a new challenge in town - Sparkle and Shine!  Their 2nd challenge is a sketch, and here's my first take on it:

Sparkle and Shine #2

supplies: pink dotted washi tape, Paper Smooches dots die, Simon's Best Mom Ever flowers, Lil Inker Spot On (sentiment), pinks and greens from Pretty Pink Posh Springtime Mix sequins, stitched rectangles

I used  a mix of washi tape and a dotty die to make my background, and had so much fun making it that I did a second version:

SAS #2

supplies: Freckled Fawn washi tape, Die-Namics Blueprints 20 zig-zag dot die,  red, white, and green cardstock, mint dot from Echo Park's Bundle of Joy Dots & Stripes pad, Wplus9 Folk Art Florals dies, Simon's Giving Thanks (sentiment), red sequins

This time I mixed a zig-zag die with my washi.  And I really enjoyed making this tiny little scene in the same colors.

Here's the sketch:

If I have time, I think I'd like to try it using all design papers..........

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. You're a whiz with washi tape! I love the faux stitching in between each row. This card feels very springy.

  2. Nice cards, Lin! I like this sketch; maybe I'll find time to join in.

  3. These are both as pretty as can be, love your use of the Washi tapes!

  4. Love both of the cards! Such a great take on the sketch, Lin! Thank you so much for playing with us at Sparkle & Shine!
