You Hold The Key


Popping in with one more challenge card today.  This month's challenge at Young Crafters Unite is a sketch challenge and I broke out some new PTI stamps to play along.  It took a lot of fussing and rearranging and colour changes before I came up with something I liked but I'm glad I didn't quit because it means I've conquered yet another sketch challenge!  They'll probably never be my favourite challenges but I'm definitely feeling more comfortable with them. 




Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Melon Mambo, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Banner from Bannerific) Lawn Fawn, Sentiment from Lock & Key) PTI
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Melon Mambo) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Heart Prints, Lock & Key) PTI

This is cute Jen, I love those keys and the heart padlock :0)
I'm guessing the little heart gives away the correct key!!

You and your "conquered a sketch challenge" makes me laugh! You are brilliant at it!! It's simple, but charming. You've used fun colors, great keys and a perfect sentiment.

Those keys are wonderful. I got that set, and have yet to use it. Silly me. I like how you put a tiny red heart inside that one key.
