CropStop Spellbinders Month!

The CropStop Challenge Blog will be highlighting Spellbinders for the entire month of April. All challenges will have a "plus" added to them. Use a Spellbinders die on your entry project and you will have the opportunity to win a Spellbinders die! At the end of April, CropStop will put all of the month's entries into the pot and draw one random winner for an awesome, colossal Spellbinders prize! Don't miss out on CropStop's April Spellbinders Paper Arts Product highlight!

Today is Challenge #14, and it's a sketch. I know that some folks find sketches hard to use, but...think of them as a blueprint for your card or layout. Use a sketch for position of embellishments and orientation of photos and images. You don't have to follow the sketch exactly...just use it as a guideline.

I loved this sketch when I created it, but then when I started to work with it, the whole concept went out the window, and this is what I ended up with!

I used a cute Kraftin' Kimmie stamp, colored with Copics, and Basic Grey paper.

The greeting is from Papertrey Ink. As you can see, I used lots of Spellbinders dies: S4-116 Standard Circles Small, S4-110 Classic Oval Large, S4-112 Classic Oval Small, S4-293 Lacey Circles.
