Tuesday at Skipping Stones Design!

This week at Skipping Stones Design we have another gorgeous sketch from Jen Del Muro. I have to admit, this sketch really made me think. I wanted each layer to stand out without being too busy. I thought that this long skinny journal would be perfect!

I used the beautiful star stamp from the Christmas Swirls set and doubled it to make a flower shape. The sentiment is from the Healing Wings set. I embossed the stars with a gorgeous vibrant blue powder and topped it with an ivory button and this new GORGEOUS ribbon I ordered from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I really love shiny things and this ribbon makes me happy:) I guess I have a lot in common with the raccoons that frequent my neighborhood (minus the garbage of course!)

Make sure to check back because next week I get to show you the wonderful new releases from Skipping Stones. You won't want to miss it because there will also be a chance to win a free stamp set!

Here is our lovely sketch this week, I do hope you can join us!

What a beautiful project and you made me laugh about your similarity to the racoons in your neighborhood (minus the garbage) - great sense of humor. I like pretty shiny things too and this ribbon is very pretty and shiny.

Thanks for participating with us at Opus Gluei!

Very pretty. Love all the layers. And that you used a winter stamp for a regular day project. Very clever of you. I'm still giggling at you being a raccoon (minus garbage). I love shiny things too. Thanks for playing with us at Opus Gluei.

I love this and that you used the sketch for something other than a card! Thanks for the inspiration!
