Alice Gets Sketchy

Hello out there in blogland! I hope everyone is having a great start to their Memorial Day weekend. I got some stampin' time so you KNOW I am!

Today the {Little Paper Shop} is sponsering not one but TWO challenge blogs! How fun!! Sponsership means PRIZES for you, so I hope you can find some time to play along this week. What can you win?? Well, you can win a gift certificate to the LPS store from EACH of the challenges (winner is drawn at random). Nice!! So, what are you waiting for?

The first challenge blog is the Oh, Alice! challenge blog that LPS design team alumni Jessica Diedrich started up a few months ago. Their challenge {OAC15} is to use SWIRLS on your card. Love swirls!!

The second challenge is a new sketch from Card Patterns {#66}! I think everyone has heard before how sketches are my most faaaaaaaavorite type of challenge!! Here it is {as you can see, I flipped it for my project today}:

Well, fittingly, I used our {Little Paper Shop} Alice digi for my card. Colored her with Copic markers, paired up with some SU patterned paper, American Crafts buttons, ribbon from the stash (I think it's May Arts) and a swirl from Zva Creative.

Be sure to check out the challenge blogs directly for more information, and more inspiration from their design teams. Some of the other girls from the LPS team are playing along too, so swing by and see what they've come up with! Don't forget to link up your creations per the blog owners' instructions for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the LPS store (at EACH challenge!).

I'm taking tomorrow off from the blog, so I'll see you back here Monday for more fun with the {Little Paper Shop}!

13 people made my day!:
