June Sketch Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome to
of the 
June Sketch Blog Hop

Everyone had so much fun doing these,
it has turned into a regular event.

Today the purpose of this hop is to show you
how all of these talented bloggers
can take the same sketch
and come up with totally different cards.

If you have never used a card sketch before, give it try!
Our hop focuses on this fabulous sketch!
If you arrived here from Ashley's Blog, then you are on the right track.
However, if you just stopped in and would like to start from the 
beginning, please hop over to Jennifer's Blog.
Enjoy the Hop!!!

Here is my card for today

I started with AC embossed card stock in a soft pink
I used dp from my Authentique - Free Bird  series (6x6 paper pad)
I cut the center shape using my Creative Memories oval cutters
The small 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon - Cherry Lipstick behind the center image
and for the small bow in the corner
Inks used: Adirondack - Sunshine Yellow and Pink Studio G
The popped up flower was heat embossed (white) and fussy cut.
The oval shape was debossed using a damask folder
All of the stamping (damask background, sentiment, and flower) are from the
May 2012 Unity Kit of The Month - {LOVE in an INSTANT}

 Now you will hop over to Kristy

I am entering this card into the
Unity Opportunity Challenge - Bright Colors

Happy Hopping
Keep Crafting 


  1. Really pretty card, Jessica! Love the pretty colors and the crinkle ribbon bow! That texture looks fab on the green, too! Great job with the sketch!


  2. Love the colors that you used! You did a really nice job

  3. This is a very pretty card, Jessica. I might add a flag-sort of banner sentiment to the lower left, to suit my occasion and to balance it a bit, but that's me. Nicely done!!
