It's Friday!  NICE!   How bout kicking off the weekend by playing along with us 
for this week's iSpy Sketches Challenge?!

This week we have turned the talented Julia Stainton for some inspiration and it is THIS card of hers that we are using for this week's sketch!

Here is the sketch:

And here is my take on the sketch:

I stamped the image from the PTI Vintage Picnic  in Momento tuxedo black and color it with copics.  I used the coordinating die  with some gingham papers.  All DSP are from the Simple Stories Baby Steps   6x6 paper pad.  I paired it with some PTI vintage cream and dark chocolate CS.  I stamped the sentiment in Momento rich cocoa.  Finally I added a loop of PTI dark chocolate twill ribbon.  

Here's how to play:
  • Create a paper crafting project (card, scrap book page or 3D item), based on the sketch provided.
  • Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code ISSC02), and link it up over on the iSpy Sketches blog.Please provide a direct link to your post - not the generic link to your blog.
  • A new challenge will be posted every Friday at 12.01 AM EST, and you have until noon on Wednesday EST to submit your entry.
  • You may enter as many times as you like, but please provide a newly designed project with a new link for each additional project.
  • We will choose the top 2 creations to be featured in our "Top 2 Thursday" post where we will announce who we have picked :) The winners will receive their very own iSpy Sketches blog badge!
  • Don't forget that you may combine our challenges with others and use supplies from any company that you wish :)
  • Have fun and we look forward to "spying:" your creations!
Be sure to check what the other Special Agents have created for some additional inspiration!
