I am very tired and probably should not be posting this tonight....or this morning....or whatever it is! BUT I finished this card a bit ago and wanted to share it with you! This was created using the CPS Sketch challenge. It has been a while since I have been over there to check out the sketch's and I really liked this one.
So, here it is. The colors that I chose came from a CTMH Idea Book. Off hand, I don't remember which one. But the colors are Barn Red, Creme' Brulee, Cocoa and Sorbet. I used liquid glass on the balloons in which I paper pieced with various patterned papers. OH and the center balloon is pop dotted for a bit more dimension.
Isn't this little hedgehog just the cutest thing?? I think so!! She is from the July Stamp of the Month called Happy Forever. I used my CTMH water color pencil Desert Sand and gamsol to color him in. Thanks to Melissa (a ctmh consultant) for creating this little creature and sharing how she colored it in!! I did not have a waterbrush to blend the watercolor pencil, so I just used my gamsol and paper pencil thingy that I already had.
Paper: Boom-Di-Ada, Aspen, Caboodle and Cocoa, Sorbet, Creme Brulee CS
Stamps: Happy Forever (July SOTM) and TLC
Ink: Cocoa, Deser Sand Water Color pencil
Embellishments: Sorbet Ribbon, Cocoa Ribbon, Liquid Glass
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope that I have inspired you to head on over to CPS and try out this sketch too!!
Happy Scrappining and Stamping!!

CPS Sketch Challenge with a JULY SOTM Sneek Peak
Life has a way of throwing us curveballs when we least expect it. What we do and how we react to those curveballs, is up to us. Who would have thought that at the age of 45 I would be starting my life over, reinventing myself and finally figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Well, ALMOST! lol I want to play with ink, paper and ribbon and share Stampin' Up's wonderful products and opportunities with you!! I am THRILLED to be part of this company and am looking forward to seeing where the wind takes me. Happy Stamping!!
