Paper Craft Planet - I Brake for Stamps Sketch Challenge


Today, the Paper Craft Planet Super Novas are taking part in a sketch challenge sponsored by I Brake for Stamps! To play along, create a card using this sketch. Post your photo in the gallery at Paper Craft Planet using the tag PCPIBFS (all caps, please!) and be eligible to win a $30 gift certificate to the I Brake for Stamps store! AND any orders placed from now until Saturday, using the code PCPlanet you can receive 15% off your order! How's that for some enabling (and awesome generosity from the IBFS store!)

The Super Novas all chose to play with the Humorous Seniors stamps, and I picked Hard of Hearing Helen because she reminds me of my Grandma Frances! Now mind you... my Grandma did NOT wear dresses that were as revealing as Helen's, and she didn't show that much leg! But, she did have a hearing problem for awhile, so my Dad pulled out the old megaphone that my Mom used to use when she was a high school cheerleader for Grandma to use! He meant it as a joke, but it worked well for Grandma so she kept it close to her side!

So here is my card! I used some of my Basic Grey June Bag designer paper for my card, because it also reminds me of my Grandma! She must have had an apron, or a pot holder or something in these colors because this paper always makes me think of Grandma's kitchen!
When you check out the sketch for this challenge, you'll see that the sentiment is actually supposed to be on the front of the card. Well, the sentiment I received to use is too big for the card front with this particular sketch, but it's too priceless not to have on the card somewhere, so I put it on the inside instead! Check it out....
Is that not perfect?

The rest of the Super Novas have some fun projects for you to see using these stamps, so be sure to check them out!
