Let's Celebrate!

Hi All! And a Very Happy Saturday to you! Today I am back with another Fabulous Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge! Yay!  This Week our Challenge is a Sketch with a Spin, and that means there is a Fantastic prize up for grabs to one lucky winner and all you need to do is add some type of Fabulous Fibers to your sketch creation!  I drew my inspiration for my sketch creation from my Terrific teammate Kim O'Connell, a quick trip to the Twinery Blog ,suggested by my Wonderful friend and teammate Monika Davis, and last but definitely not least, my newly acquired  Lil' Inker Designs Rainbows & Clouds dies and stamp set... Let me tell you, this is a  fun little set!  So easy to use and so many fun possibilities! So without further delay, here's the Sweet Stop Sketch #122 for this week:

And here's my take on it.. I only changed the shape of my semi circle to a cloud shape, and kept the rest spot on with Korin's Fantastic sketch!... 8-)

My Sweet Rainbow and Clouds were created with the help of my brand new Lil' Inker Rainbow & Clouds die set and a bit of ivory CS from my stash, a Zig glue pen, four different colors of Yummy bakers twine from MAD Stamper Finds,  a touch of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and a lot of patience, to apply the bakers twine to each stripe of the rainbow.. lol  My BG panels were created with a combination of ivory CS from my stash that I ran through my CB using the Divine Swirls embossing folder and shaded with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, some kraft CS from my stash and some Adorable Lime Twist DP from MME. My Impression Obsession sentiment was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto a Fun little cloud cut with the help of my Cricut and the Potpourri cartridge.  And to finish it all up I popped up both my sentiment & image panels with a few dimensionals, added some more Yummy bakers twine and a Darling little heart button from my stash.  

Well, I sure hope you can play along with us at The Sweet Stop this week, can't wait to see your take on this weeks sketch! And please, make sure to stop by and take a peek at the rest of the Sweet Stop Sugar Babies Awesome creations! 8-)
