MMSC #74

Hello and welcome back to the Papercraft Place! 

Here is my card for this weeks sketch challenge. I used this pretty image from "D Amour Allure"
I kept it pretty clean and simple this week. I wanted to stay true to the sketch so I didn't add any fancy flowers or embellishments  (GASP!)

Items used to create this card include:

Clear buttons airbrushed to match the DP
Kaiser pearls
Spellbinders nestabilities
Ranger distress ink

This weeks sketch...it's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between. Remember to click on the sneak peek button on the side bar for the following weeks sketch each Friday.

Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us :)

Hello! My name is Shawne, I am an Illustrator. I love art in many forms. There is always something new to learn and experiment with. Card making is perfect with many different mediums and that is how I got hooked! I just recently moved my image line, Studio 313 by Shawne to McMahon Five Designs and am really excited to be working with my friend Sue McMahon. I also have a line of stamps at Clear Dollar stamps, although I am no longer there. You can find out more about my past work and some more recent at my blog Paper Art From Studio 313.

  8. Holly this is a wonderful creation filled with lovely details. The papers almost give it a shabby chic appeal. Love the ribbon and the buckles.
