The Challenge #8 Guest Designer

Hi friends!  Happy Monday!  My good friend, Lesley of Always Playing With Paper chose my card as the winner of her The Challenge #7 sketch!  So excited.

This means I am Guest Designer for The Challenge #8, and Lesley is featuring my card on her blog today!
Here is the sketch:

If you haven't checked out this challenge yet, you must.  It is a fun one with some great designers on Lesley's team.

For my card, I changed up the sketch a bit by putting my shape on the opposite side and tilting my panels the other way.

I used patterned papers from Simple Stories and Feather Finery stamp set and die from Papertrey Ink.  The Hello die is from Simon Says.

Thank you so much Lesley for allowing me to play along with you as Guest Designer this week!  I love your sketches!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

    I know that I've said it before but you really do have talent for choosing the perfect 'embellies'...the twine bow, sequins & 'hello'. It all 'works' so well with the feather!
