You Rock! (SPARKS challenge & RS #48)


Hi all, hanging at home these days quite a bit. I needed to make a birthday card for a friend of Collin's. His friend is really into rocks, and so I thought I would make a rock card :) I have this Cuteasaurus set from Paper Smooches and it has the rock stamp. The sentiment is from Sentiment Sampler.

This card is for two challenges, the current Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge, to use the following inspiration photo to kick off your design....



















It's also for the current Retrosketches #48, here is the sketch...


Here's my card again, I used only scraps for the patterned paper. I am so loving on my scraps basket since I cleaned it out last weekend. :)



I had some new washi tape from PeachyCheap.com, boy that site is dangerous!


I used my TCP Grass and Cloud Border CutUps to create the little scene using more scraps. The rock was stamped and fussy cut, then popped up with a 3D dot. This is a small card, 4 1/4" square.



Well that is all for me today. I have a BIG announcement tomorrow, so check back in if you can! :)

hugs, Noelle

I love your card! I should've known that you had an art background. Your composition is awesome.
And I would love to be follower! When I saw your blog, my first thought was, "She's the one who made that awesome paper bird!" (From the other card you made recently). I do love that bird! :)
