Monday Feb. 9 2009 CPS Sketch Challenge

After all of our frigid, cold weather...I'm ready for SUMMER!! Summer is one of my favorite seasons!! I enjoy sitting outside on the front porch swing, listening to the sounds of summer. Two sounds that quickly come to mind are....Birds chirping and lawn mowers. Honestly, I enjoy both! Ok, ok, enough chatter!! :)
I have fallen in love with this paper. The paper is from a CK scrapbook kit ( I bought it on sale for practically nothing!!). I have used it SO many times! One thing that's great about it is.... It's quite versatile and CUTE!!
First, I started out with a mostly square card and rounded the edges. From there I created the large circle with my Martha Stewart circle system (bought at wal-mart for around $15.00). Next, I layered the scalloped nestie circle sponged and added the ribbon. Now for the tricky part. The ice cream cone was an embellishment that I had to enlarge about 3 times to get the desired size I needed for the card. I then, simply traced the enlarged pattern onto my PP and than cut it out twice and adhered it. To top it off, I added some stitching and sponging. TFL!! ~Lori
