Seems A Little Sketchy - September Guest Designer

Hello!  Happy Monday and happy Labor Day if you are in the US or Canada and you're celebrating the holiday!  It's really early, but if all goes well, Mr. Blogger is posting this for me long before I actually wake up!  I am very excited to say that I was selected to be one of the Guest Designers for September for the Seems A Little Sketchy Challenge blog!  I am so honored to be able to post along with their awesome DT!  The current challenge is being sponsored by My Heart Pieces and Unique Crafters Challenge.  I was generously provided with a digi from My Heart Pieces to use for my creation. Priyanka has so many beautiful digital stamps!  You should definitely check out her blog!
Here is the SALS #21 sketch:


Here is my card:


I started with a card base of GKD Turquoise Sea and layered with patterned papers from the Echo Park So Happy Together and Amy Tangerine Sketchbook 6x6 pads.  I machine-stitched around all the sketch panels.  The adorable image is Bathing Fairy from My Heart Pieces.  I printed her on X-Press It and colored her with my Copics.  I added a bunch of Stickles and some Polar White Flower Soft to the bubbles.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  It is part of the Choose To Be set in Paulette's store here.  Some shimmery lace and a flower from my stash finished my card.

Here is close-up:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Seems A Little Sketchy Challenge blog and check out the new sketch and the fantastic creations from the DT and my co-Guest Designer, Beth!  I'm sure you will be inspired to play along!

Have a great day and hope to see you again soon!

  7. Carla, this is just the cutest image AND sentiment ever! I love your card with the awesome stitching and fun bubbles.

    We were in B'ham yesterday when the storms were predicted and by the time we reached Cullman, it was dark (about 5:30) and horrible looking. Was glad glad to get home safe and sound. But, we did finally get a lot of rain. I think today will be another round of storms. Ugly holiday!

  26. Hi, Carla! This is beautiful! You really have the best eye for design. I absolutely love the interplay of the large muted green chevrons and the smaller red/white ones. The base pp with all the hexagons filled with patterns that pick up your main panels is such an awesome design element. Of course your stitching just elevates this card to "jealousy" level in my book! (LOL) This is just great. So glad I had a chance to stop by today.
