ISPY18

Sometimes, I blow my own mind...
However, sometimes even when I blow my own mind I am disappointed with the photograph of my own project. This photo does NOT do this card justice! What you can not see is STICKLES on the doily! It's a shame too because they really do make it pop.

I used products from the June Simon Says Stamp Card Kit and a few extras I had lying around. This is a terrific sketch from the I SPYSketches Challenge # 18. I don't normally enjoy making those blocks. But I had these fab-o dsps to work with so I jumped in with both feet. I loved the patterns together and think they worked well together for this sketch. The beautiful key stamp is from Jodie Lee. I recently found Jodie's etsy shop and went hog wild! Google Jodie. I stamped the key on glossy white cs with black ink and when it was completely dry I daubed some pink and tangerine ink over it.

I had already stuck my dsps down so I had to cut off the prongs on the back of my brads so they would lay flat. Added a couple of buttons and some twine and Voila!

If you love a challenge, pop on over to I SPY SKETCHES and give this one a try. You won't be sorry!!!
