Little Dear - JAI #271 Challenge

Do you ever feel like making a card but find it hard to think of a design? Challenge sites are a great way to kick start the design process. Just looking at all of the entries can give you great ideas. You don't even have to enter - just use them as a starting point. Just Add Ink is a fantastic site to check each week. They have different types of challenges, including colour and sketch challenges. This week they have a sketch challenge - JAI #271.
I decided to make a baby card using a Stampin' Up! set that I haven't had a chance to use yet called Made with Love. It co-ordinates with Baby's First Framelits.

Sketches can be changed slightly by altering proportions or in this case the shape. I decided to use my new 2" circle punch by punching the main colours that I had used. I was really a bit too lazy to die cut larger circles! I figured that the class participants who will make this in August will appreciate the ease of doing it this way!

Tip: Use Crystal Effects to adhere sequins and sequin trim to your projects.

Inside this card is a great surprise. You'll have to check back in over the next few days to see what it is. It's my turn to set the weekly ESAD challenge tomorrow and the inside is part of that.
