RI WIW Sketch #J2712




Happy Wednesday everyone~

It is time for What If? Wednesday Sketch from Repeat Impressions!! You will have 2 weeks (until Tuesday, Jul 10  ) to enter your card using the sketch over RI Blog The House That Stamps Built. All participants will have a chance to win a $25 Repeat Impressions gift certificate!! I hope you will play along with us! Please check out RI Blog for more detail.


Here is my card:


My kids and I are leaving for Japan on Sunday…and I think this card is so right for me to send my friend or family :) I used Hot Air Balloon (9113-K) for the image and Soaring by to say Hi (9104-G) for the sentiment. Both of the stamps are from Big Boys Toys Collection! The image was paper pieced with 2 different designer papers. The mat was sponged with blue ink. The card was designed with the same designer paper and cardstock. The card layer mat was dry embossed. To finish off, I embellished with rhinestones and red baker’s twine.



Be sure to check out the creations by the rest of RI Rock Stars below to get more inspirations too!!
