Love Me Some Limelight!!

Guess what?!?!?!?! Mandy over at Limelight Papercrafts asked me to stay on and be their guest for the month of September, too!!! YAY!!! I'm so excited :) Today is the first sketch challenge of the month, and it is all about patterns - paper or stamps. My card is actually a series of happy accidents and comical errors - so I ended up cheating a bit on the sketch. I made it while playing Wii with my almost five year old and holding my 4 month old. It was an exercise in patience, lol!

First I flipped the sketch on its side. Then I measured out my panels of dp (all Basic Grey's Olivia) and mounted them on what I thought was the right piece of white cardstock. Nope - not the right one! So I recut my base panel to have a card with a finished size of 6" x 4 1/4". See what happens when I multitask? I was also concentrating on the dp panels so much, I didn't really even consider where I'd put an image -- I just liked the dp so much when it all came together. So here's where my cheating came in -- I added a panel for my image, which is from the January 2009 Unity kotm (and psssssttt...the 2009 Unity Kits are on sale!).  I added a couple of ribbons and some fused pearls and quit while I was ahead!

Here's what you need to know about playing along with us:
  • follow the sketch provided, and focus on patterns (paper or stamps)
  • if you upload to SCS, use the keyword LLPC055
  • post a comment & link directly to your card here, on Mandy's blog, by Sunday, Sep. 6 @ midnight (or before the winner is drawn Monday morning)
  • cross your fingers and hope you win the awesome Jillibean Soup Sugar Picks that are the prize!
Other things you shouldn't miss:
Be sure to head over to the other designer's blogs to see what amazing things they did with the sketch!
