Clearly Inspired Challenge # 10 -- Sketch

I am so happy it's Friday. Not because of the typical reasons .. because (every other)  Friday means its time for the Clearly Inspired Challenge over at ClearlyiStamp. This time around the talented ladies at CIC have a very intriguing sketch to challenge us. This week, I was inspired by the sample made by my BFF, Cassie. So much so, in fact, that I texted her to make sure it was ok if I use the same chipboard piece as she did, as well as the same collection of dp. She graciously agreed, and I was off to work on the challenge. Thankfully, our cards did turn out different, so it isnt blatently obvious that I nearly copied her. LOL.

After some deliberation, I chose one of my most favorite stamps, Walk in the Park, Clear Dollar's May 2009 stamp of the month. I chose this particular dp to mirror the center circles which I covered in coordinating dp. As a final touch, I added the leaf adorned pins to tie it all together.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you like what you see and will come back again!

Stamps: Walk in the Park (CDS),
Shining Strength-sentiment (CDS)
Paper: Crate Paper Brook dp, chocolate textured cs,
Choice Snow White CS
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Crushed Curry
Tools/Accessories: Corner Rounder, Sponge,
 Leaf Trinket Pins,
Word Window, Modern Label Punch

Hahaha, that is so not like mine! I LOVE what you did with the trees, and how you interpreted the sketch. The stick pins really give it that little 'extra' and I just love the look. Gorgeous card, Christi ;D
