A Thank You Card ~ Sketch Challenge.

I had the needed to make a few 
THANK YOU cards....

Every month a new sketch will be introduced....
the sketch can be interpreted as a card, layout or altered piece!

You need to use at least one Die~Namites Die in your creation.

You have until the last day of the month to post your creation on your blog, 
with mention of the Die~Namites Die used and a link back to the Die~Namites Dies blog. 
Link your blog post, using Inlinkz, to the Die~Namites Die blog.

A random winner will be chosen from eligible participants
for a $25 Gift Certificate to the Die~Namites Dies

Here is my take on the sketch....

Die~Namites Dies April Sketch Challenge

I pulled out a few pieces of patterned paper from
 Marion Smith's  ~ Motley and Never Grow Up Collections.
I began with the Self Portrait as the card base.

I placed the Crafter's Workshop stencil ~ Cityscape
and applied Picked Raspberry ~ Distress Stain
through the stencil.

I then pulled out Mini Ledger Stencil
and applied Golden ~ Molding Paste
and dried it.

I applied Peeled Paint ~ Distress Stain 
through the Paradise Stencil.
(I loved that it bled under the stencil!!)

Using various Marion Smith papers
I die~cut several

I colored one of "Nana's Flowers" with
Picked Strawberries ~ Distress Stain and
Peeled Paint ~ Distress Stain and then
spritzed it with a Gold Mist.

I used the second die~cut of Nana's Flowers
to fill in the die~cut areas of the painted die~cut.

I then colored a few Petaloo ~ Mini Pearl Daisies
with a smidge of Picked Raspberry ~ Distress Stain
and applied them to the die~cut Nana's Flowers.

I had also cut out 

which I ended up not using it on my "sketch" card
but created a second card with the
left~over pieces parts....

I used the "left~over" Nana's Flowers
as the backdrop for
the colored Beautiful Flowers.

I just LOVE how the patterned paper mixes so well
with the Picked Raspberries ~ Distress Stain.

I DO hope you will pull out a few of your
Die~Namites Dies and Play ALONG with US
