For You.../PS Sparks Anything Goes/DD Wanna Sketch#7

Apparently, if you are severely lacking sleep, like my Evil Doublemint Twin, Jessi Fogan is, you come up with brilliantly amazing card creations...then go on my Facebook page and brag about it, and how you used 9 different stamps from Paper Smooches, and tell me to "Bring It!"



If you insist:

Here is the inside:

12 different stamps sets, 3 different die sets, and the blue paper is even from Paper Smooches.

I believe, as you say, brought it!

Yes, it's a little garden scene. Yes, it's anything but clean and graphic (my go to kind of card making). Yes, it's chaotic, and I love it! (Besides, Nature is chaotic, so why not go with that?!)

I'm entering this for the current Paper Smooches Sparks challenge: Anything Goes.

This is also very loosely based on Dahlhouse Designs Wanna Sketch #7

For the focal panel, I made a trellis from the Basic Lattice Nesties. I trimmed it to size, then cut strips of card stock to frame it out. (Pretty cool, huh?!) Then I covered it up with leaves, flowers, bugs and a birdie! (And yes, one of the leaf die cuts I flipped over and drew the leaf in with a marker - I wanted it to point the other way.) After the trellis was done, I adhered the grass die cuts with foam squares. I stamped, colored and fussy cut the mushroom and snail then adhered them to the grass. Finished the inside and that was all she wrote!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you stop by Jessi's blog to see her incredible card!

She totally kicked my ass!
