Scrappy Chick Sunday Sketch Challenge

Happy 2012!!  I'm back with my second sketch challenge for you!  But first, you want to know last challenge's winner, right?  I had pick my winner for me and it chose Linda B!  (She had two cards in the drawing so odds were in her favor!)  Linda, shoot me an email with your snail mail!  Here's Linda's fabulous card:

Linda's blog is Linda B's Crafty Creations.  Here's her other entry, I have to share them all since I had only 3 entries this week :)

 And here's Lea of Ink-Positive's entry.  All 3 cards were so awesome I had to share!

Thanks for playing my friends!  So without further ado, heres the next challenge.  You have until Friday night January 13th at 10pm EST to enter.  PLEASE use Mr Linky so I can find your creations and everyone else can go check them out too!

For my card today I've used the cool Belly Bands with inserts from Lifestyle Crafts.  I cut the piece out, then inked the whole thing with my versamark pad and embossed it with Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel from Stampendous!  (What's that you say?  Thats new!! ) Yep, and here's a sneaky peeky of that plus a couple of more new releases from Stampendous!  These products technically aren't releasing til CHA, but your local stores will be able to start ordering them next week, so be on the lookout!

I looped the ribbon through the whole in the Belly Band insert and tied it up adding some Gold twine for an accent.  The background is a new stamp from Stampendous! called  Garden background.  And the sentiment comes from a Perfectly Clear NEW set called Wonderland (wait til you see this one!!) 

The background was inked with Pearlescent Beige Brilliance from Tsukineko and heat embossed with Clear Detail EP.  The sentiment is embossed with Detail Gold EP and cut out with Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Scallops dies.  For a final touch I added some gold metallic Dew Drops.

Here's the Tile Belly Band inserts:

The Belly bands:
(I cut off the extra pieces that would fold to the back)

And the Nesting Scallops:

Alrighty!  I'm done with another massively long post, sorry!  I do hope you'll play along with my challenge!  The sketch can be flipped around and sentiment moved or interpreted of course to be elsewhere, LOL.

Oh! And what would a challenge be without a prize??   For this challenge I am offering up 2 large and 3 small jars of gorgeous Stampendous! ultra fine glitters!! Can you say ba-ling??
