A Try It Out Tuesday Sketch

Happy Tuesday stampin' friends!! Today we have another fantastic Try It Out Tuesday challenge from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design to jump start your creativity! This week's challenge {TIOT61} is a sketch! My favorite {did you know that already?? LOL!}.

I chose
Little Danni from the newly released Victoria Case for SCACD Hearts and Hugs Spring Collection for today's project. Did you know that you can buy the set of all 7 stamps in one sheet for over 30% off the individual price? That's a deal!

I added in some other challenge to today's card too. But first, here is my card:


And here is the sketch by Suzanne:

Today's card details - all patterned paper from Basic Grey - the ultimate!! Susana has the BRAND NEW Kioshi and Green at Heart BG patterns up on the store website RIGHT NOW, so hurry over to snag yours! As you can see I'm loving the Kioshi! I stamped my sweetie with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on PTI white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. Accents and highlighting with the Ranger Inkssentials White Gel Pen. I have the matching Kioshi brads in the ticket corner holes, and used some Kaisercraft Pearls for my corner element from the sketch.

The other challenges for this card - Cupcake Craft Challenge blog {CCC84} this week was looking for a Spring card with lots of CHOCOLATE {the color}. I've got plenty here! I actually had planned to make her blonde but changed to brunette to go along with this challenge a bit better. And the best part is -- loving her as a brunette!

I also used a color challenge {my SECOND favorite, haha!} from the Copic Colour Challenge blog {#57}, here is the swatch:

I had already decided to incorporate the brown, perfection, and I didn't have any of the really dark olive greens, so I went lighter and used the Kioshi paper instead. They say you can get close if you don't have the match, so....that's what I did! Thanks ladies for the fun colors!

Lastly, I try to do The Pink Elephant Challenge every week and this week is PASTELS {TPE60}. How perfect is that?? Spring is in the air in the stamping world!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you're inspired by all the beautiful DT projects, we'd love to see your sketchy creations. I will see you all tomorrow - happy stamping & big hugs to all my readers!
