Gorgeous day, Stampin Up Consultant & DT name revealed

Hi there all-

I waited to make a post since I knew that I would have information to tell you! I am excited to be able to share with you the name of the other sketch DT I made! We are called Unscripted Sketches!!!! I don't know that you realize how much I LOVE sketches! They are great for beginner or advance card makers!!!! I love the fact that I can use the sketch however I want. I do find that with the DT's I am trying to stick to the sketch how it was designed to show that they don't have to be changed!!! If you are a card maker and struggle with idea's then sketches could really boost your self esteem! Give them a try!!!!! I am so excited to have made this team!
I am also excited to tell you all that I am a Stampin Up consultant! I have been buying from them for many years and since they had such a great deal I could not pass it up! The kit was on sale 15% off, plus a free stamp set (up to 47.95) and 3 payments! Now that is a deal! I am really only doing it for the discount but hoping to get some shows and maybe people who will be in a monthly club! I really want to learn new techniques and such that I can use to enhance my skills!
What a gorgeous day we are having in Ohio!!!! I even have the window open to let the fresh air in! LOL I don't get my hopes up that it stays that way because this is Cleveland! I am looking forward making our spring break plans! Nothing as extravagant as Williamsburg this year but fun!
Okay now to the reason you all visit me for real! I know you don't come to visit me to hear me babble but to see a card or something. This weeks sketch was another good one from our talented Dawn!

Here is the sketch:

My take:
Paper: Stampin Up, Karen Foster Recycled & DCWV
Ink: Stampin Up & Sugarloaf Brush Makers
Stamp: Inkadinkado
Scallop w/hole: Fiskars
Ribbon: Offray
Embellie: Joann Essentials
This card is a 6x6 size. The background paper is cut 5.5 x 5.5, the purple is 2.5 & pink is 2 inches. The circle was cut using my Creative Memories cutting system using DCWV glitter paper. I wanted to do something a little different with the sketch so instead of using paper I used pink ribbon wrapped around with the bow tied as the paper piece. I also added paper piercing around the cupcake. For the cupcake, I stamped it in pink ink then colored it with my new Tombow markers! I blended it with a SU blending pen then made the confetti using markers! And voila you have the completed card! I sure hope you like it!
I want to thank all of you who have chosen to follow my blog! I really appreciate it and do try to come visit you too! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
I am also going to try to have more cards and such for you all to like at! I just need to find more time. Wait that is not it.....I NEED TO MAKE MORE TIME! I need to get away from the computer and some TV and get back to my creative mode!
Hugs to you all!
