RCC16 Sketch Time

Hi friends! I hope you are having a great day! Brady didn't go to school yesterday so I have nothing to report on that front. He's a bit sick but I'm going to send him back on Wednesday. Hopefully, we didn't set him back too far but what can you do? When you're sick, you're sick, right?

Ok, today I have a FUN challenge to share with you for the Ribbon Carousel Challenge. It's a sketch from the amazing Danielle Lounds. Sketch challenges are my favorite. I don't make that a secret. I love them! And Danielle's sketches are always perfect for me because she keeps it pretty clean. Remember, when you play along with the Ribbon Carousel Challenge, you need to use ribbon, trim, twine, or something that comes on a spool on your creation!

We have a WONDERFUL sponsor for you this week! Amber Ink! I have to tell you, I get to work with some AMAZING people in this industry however Amber Ink is just superb! They are truly one of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Combine that with their cute stamps and awesome digi paper and you just can't lose. This week, they are giving away a $15 gift certificate to the store.

Here's my card for this week, I rotated the sketch. I used my Amber Ink Can I Keep Him set. This card got an "Awww!" from my husband. I'm just saying, this little mermaid is CUTE! I used some Navy Swiss Dot ribbon on my card. The paper is from My Mind's Eye and I colored this with Copics and added Stickles.
Check out the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog to check out all the design team's work and to link up your creation!
