November Sketch For You to Try and My First Guest Designer Spot!!

I am so excited to share that I was asked to be the November guest designer for Jen del Muro's Sketch for You to Try (SFYTT) challenge on her blog, I {Heart} 2 Stamp.  I love Jen's style and creativity, she designs for some of my very favorite stamp companies, and I enjoy participating in the sketch challenges each month.  So you can imagine what an honor and happy surprise it is to serve in my very first guest designer spot with her.

The sponsor this month is Sweet Stamp Shop, a relatively newer company with some super cute images, and some great inspiration on their blog.  My card features a sentiment and these fun little headphones from the Old School Rock set...so retro!

I added some little doodled lines and dots around my panels and feature some bright colors with MME Lime Twist papers and yummy texture with the bright green plush scalloped ribbon and twine.  The sentiment panel and label shape under it were cut with MFT's Die-namics, and peeking out from under the ribbon is the fun Pennant Border Die from Verve Stamps.

Thanks so much for the invitation to represent SFYTT this month, Jen!

Congratulations to you my darling! A very well deserved guest designer spot I must say :) and, this card is no exception to the rule- it's as fabulous as all your others! :) it would be perfect for a teenager, which is a really tricky age group to make cards for I find.

Ah, I am so pleased for you! Congratulations again ;)

This is so super cute! Now you have to try out for different DTs because you got the bug, lol. After I was Guest Designer in July, I was asked repeatedly to be on DT's and it's so much fun! Hope you try out for our GDT at Loves Rubberstamps as well :)
