Papertake Weekly Sketch Challenge

This is the card I made for Katharina's Sketch # 2 over at Papertake Weekly Sketch Challenge. Go check it out and join in the fun.

This card utilizes all things Papertrey Ink, from the cardstock, the images, the ribbon and even the ink. There were three exceptions and I will tell you about those as I describe the making of this card. I began with the newest cardstock, Summer Sunrise, for the base. Then I added layers of patterned paper which are from HOTP, their Citrus line. The circle was cut from Lemon Tart cardstock, also new this month. The main image is from the Little Lady set. I stamped the base of the ladybug using Lemon Tart ink, then stamped the spots in Summer Sunrise. The flowers were stamped in the same colours. Man, even the white c/s is Select White. On the white square, I stamped the edges using the Faux Ribbon set and on the circle, I used the Borders & Circles set which includes the sentiment. I layered it beginning with the striped paper, then added the green circles and the yellowish letters. Next came the circle and then the striped paper along the lower portion with the stripes going in the opposite direction. Now it was time to add the ribbon which is from the Lemon Tart collection. I finished it off with some Bazzill flowers and some glitter dots from Gina K. Designs. I really like this sketch and will use it again because of its versatility.
