Sketchy Tuesday with Skipping Stones!!!

Good Morning, everyone!!!

Welcome to SSD's Sketch Challenge 101!

Wait until you see the awesome sketch Chan Vuong has for us this week.  It's so versatile that you will be able to use any SSD stamp set that your heart desires.

This month the SSD DT has teamed up with Creative Impressions who has so graciously donated many of the items you will see on all of the DT cards this month.  You would not believe all of the beautiful ribbon, cute brads and unique brackets that were given to us.  You'll have to go check out their site to see what other cute items they have to offer.

Here's my card using Chan's awesome sketch and a ton of brads and brackets from Creative Impressions!
All those awesome brackets definitely came in handy with this sketch.  And isn't Timeless Textures just gorgeous as a patterned paper panel???

If you click to enlarge this image, I'm hoping that you can see that this card isn't just done on white cardstock.  I used PTI's Shimmer cardstock and you would not believe how GORGEOUS it is.  The shimmer is just amazing.

Are you ready to play along?
Here's this week's Skipping Stones #101 Sketch:

Joining us again this week are Jimmi Mayo, Betsy Veldman and our honorary DT is Jessica Griffin.  These wonderful ladies created some show-stoppers, so be sure to give them some love.  After you check out their blogs, you'll want to take a peek at the other Skipping Stones DT blogs to see what they have created!

I can't wait to see what you create this week!!!

I also used the colors in the Inkspirations #94 Color Challenge this week.  When I saw the colors, I knew I had to come up with something because all the brackets and brads matched. How's that for fate???

I can't think of anything better to use on this sketch than all those brads and brackets! They are absolutely perfect. I love the colors and I think this is one of the most interesting cards I have seen in quite a bit, and I mean that in a very good way!
