CPS #143 sponsored by DRS Designs


DRS Designs is sponsoring the sketch challenge over at Card Positioning Systems this week! It's a great sketch... hop on over there, take a look and join in the fun!

For my card, I chose to use this new Giant Poinsettia stamp from DRS. It's a beautiful image to color! I colored mine, then cut it out and mounted it on top of a piece of paper die cut with the Labels 4 Nestabilities. That piece of paper, along with the striped paper comes from a new 6x6 pad of paper from KaiserCraft called Belle. My cardstock colors are Stampin' Up! Always Artichoke and Cranberry Crisp. The Artichoke circle was embossed with the Snowflake Cuttlebug folder.
I used the Peace, Hope and Love sentiment stamp on the inside, paired with some Natural Ivory SU! cardstock, and a die cut scalloped border from the KaiserCraft 6x6 pad.
See what the other DRS designers have created for this sketch challenge, too!


Hope you're having a great weekend! Thanks for visiting my blog!

Gorgeous card, Tammy! The pointsettia as the focal point is such a great idea -- love how it pops out of the sketch box. Your coloring is awesome; the color combo gives the card a perfect vintage feel. And you are so good about including the inside in the decorating, too!!
