Share Joy Challenge #31

Well hello there!

Thursday, again? It sure is, and I am bringing you this week's Share Joy Challenge! I went all pink and green for this one, using my latest fav from Taylored Expressions, Sit & Chat. Seriously, so adorable.

I chose to use the sketch, and replaced the tag with the sofa and lamp, paper piecing those with a combination of card stock, and patterned paper, and their matching dies. I then took the fabulous Basketweave Cutting Plate, and ran it through a piece of water color paper that I did a couple of washes on.

I laid the negative portion of the background die onto a light gray card base, and reinserted the strips. I tied twine around, along with a sentiment white heat embossed onto vellum. I then added my images with foam adhesive. 

So, play along with us! We would love to have you, and you can chose between the sketch, and Tic-Tac-Toe!

Challenge Format:

Each week we will be bring you two types of challenges that you can use separately or together to inspire your creativity. One of the challenges will always be a sketch.
