Good Neighbors

Cindy Haffner has another fun sketch challenge for us this week on the CCEE Stampers blog. Check it out here and come play along with us!



I just love the cute images in this Good Neighbors Sale-a-Bration set from Stampin' Up! After I colored my images using my Copic markers, I softly sponged bashful blue for the sky, graduating to a little barely banana at the base of the skyline, and then certainly celery for the ground.

My designer paper is some of the SU Bella Rose I've been hoarding. It was perfect for this sketch layout! See the button embellishment in the corner? That's a Sizzlit die----so dadburn cute and fun to play with using designer paper!

Charlene, this is so pretty. The Bella Rosa dp was probably my very favorite of SU paper. I am like you, hoarding it. :) I was not even considering this set until I saw your card, you have certainly made it a wow set. Love that little button.
