The Sweet Shop Challenge

Did you know that each Saturday Korin posts a sketch challenge at The Sweet Shop? If not, you should check it out and play along with the challenge! Well I don't think it's any secret that I love sketches! I find that a card comes together so quickly when I have a sketch to follow. (I also keep a folder full of already colored images on hand so I the creation process can really fly! It's perfect for creating a card when you're short on time...which is what I am just about every day!) This week I decided to ink up one of the newly released Sweet 'n Sassy stamp sets, Woof You. I'm typically not a huge animal stamp fan but this little face is so cute I couldn't resist and I decided to color him in a dark grey shade so he resembles our dog Max, who passed away about a year ago. (I still miss his little face!) And guess what the name of the fabulous designer paper is? Max and Whiskers! It's a new pet-themed line from Basic Grey, that I picked up at Wholly Scrap. See the tiny paw prints on the paper...so cute! The bottom scallops are a newsprint (need that for a new puppy!) paper from Tim Holtz's new oh so grungey paper pack. Rhinestones are from Little Yellow Bicycle and the ribbon is an oldie from SU!
Guess what else I did? Decorated the inside of my card...I never do that but I just couldn't find a good spot for my sentiment on the outside and I was itching to use the cute paw print stamp so this was the perfect solution! Enjoy today's card and hop on over to The Sweet Shop to check out all of the challenge details!
