Can You Case it #136 Sketch Challenge - Happy Ornament

I'm super sad to announce that this is my last week of being on the Design Team for CYCI. I've absolutely loved being part of this team and I will be sad to say goodbye but I know I will be back to take part in lots of their challenge to come.

And so I leave on a sketch challenge, which are always my favorite, so that's kind of fitting.
This is going to be one popular challenge I'm sure of it and there is so much you can do with it too. Oh and the fact that you don't have to stick anything down straight is a huge plus in my book!! Ok so here is my card for this week:
I've been hanging out to use my new big ornament stamp called Happy Ornament, from the Holiday Catalogue. I've actually not come across any samples or other cards made with this stamp which I find really surprising. Maybe my card will be the start of a revolution!

I stamped the image onto a piece of water-colour paper and used a few different shade of purple to get the ombre effect. I then cut it out and popped it up on another piece of water-colour paper.

The actually idea of the layout came from another sample which is in the catalogue and on the same page as the happy ornament. I love the idea of stamping a sentiment over and over again to make my own DSP.

Can you see the stitching around the water-coloured paper?? That's my first attempt at machine sewing and I was pretty pleased with my effort. I'm sure there will be more of that to come!

Now it's time for you to head on over to check out all the gorgeous cards from the DT's and get your entry in too.

Happy Crafting,
