Paper Sweeties Inspirational Sketch Challenge 9


{Wahoo this was selected as Top 4 At Little Scrap Pieces on 7/7/13}

It's hard for me to believe it's the first of July already, but that means it's time for Paper Sweeties Inspirational Sketch.  You can find the sketch below. 
Here is what I have for you...

I started with a blue card base onto which I pieced together my patterned papers all from the Americana line by K & Company. I distressed the edges and added a doily to the center.  I created a banner using Paper Sweeties Fun Shapes, as well as various cut pieces adding some blue and white twine. A final embellishing touch was adding a few buttons and a Celebrate sentiment from Paper Sweeties Beautiful Stamp Set.

Here is this month's sketch.... 

I totally {heart} banners and thought this was so much fun to play along with...I hope you will too and I would love for you to join us! We love to be inspired by your creations! You could be our next guest designer and winner of a $20.00 shopping spree! Now that is just awesome!
