Skipping Stones Sketch #114

 **post 2 of 2 today**

Morning peeps!  I have fun news to share today!  I am guest designing this month for Skipping Stones Design!  Yippee!  I just adore the whimsical and funny images especially, but also the inspirational ones as well.  For todays card we could use any set and I chose one that I have loved since I first saw it...Uplifting.

I paper pieced the balloon and the rolling hills with patterns from Echo Park's Summer Days.  I stamped my pieces in black Versafine then embossed them with Clear detail embossing powder from Stampendous!

Here's another closeup peek.  My sentiment was warped on my block into a slight curve to wrap around the circle panel.  Its easy to do with clear stamps!  And this set comes with tons of cute sentiments!

OK, so here's this weeks sketch if you can play along!  Also be sure to go to the Skipping Stones Design blog to check out more inspiration!  And I'm soooooo happy to be on there with these gals this month!
