InStyle Stamps Thankful Thursday Sketch Challenge with Blog Candy!

It is Thursday!!! Why am I so excited about today?? InStyle Stamps is having their Thankful Thursday Sketch Challenge and they are giving away this super cute InStyle Stamps Inspiration Kit to one lucky participant!!

How do you play along? All you need to do is create a card based on this sketch with the words Thanks, Thank You, Thankful, or some form of one of those words. Once you have finished your card, leave a comment to this post with a link to your creation no later than Wednesday, February 25th 11:59pm. If you are uploading your card to SCS or PCP, please use ISSTT2-19. You don't have to use a stamp from InStyle Stamps, but if you have one, go ahead and use it! The winner will be announced on the InStyle Stamps blog on Thursday February 26th and you will have 48 hours to claim your prize.

OK on to the sketch...... Since I am not creative enough to come up with my own sketch, Maria Bell who is on the InStyle Stamps DT, graciously allowed me to choose one from the hundreds that she has created! Thanks Maria!!!

For my card I used this sweet little cup that is a Digi Download from InStyle Stamps. I printed the cup in the size that I needed to fit in the square, colored it with my Copic Markers, then cut out the cup.

Before I pop dotted the cup to the square I used the steam from the printed image as a template to paper pierce onto the different layers of the card. I then took my glue pen to the pierced holes and added glitter both to the steam and to the lid of the cup.

Supplies used:
Paper: Bo Bunny Sweetie Pie from InStyle Stamps
Digital Image: Small Cup, InStyle Stamps and Say it in Style, CMTH
Embellishments: Ribbon from InStyle Stamps, Olive Organdy CTMH, Sparkles from Archiver's, Prisma Glitter CTMH
Inks used: CTMH Garden Green and Bubblegum, Copic Markers
Nestabilities Scalloped Circle

What are you waiting for?? Get busy creating and let's see what you got!!

I hope that this has inspired you to play along this week!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

LOL! It's funny because I didn't even recognize my own sketch. It must be an old one!
