How Sweet

Today I spent a couple hours in my stamp room. It was very nice! I was creating a few cards for the Sweet 'n Sassy release party challenges last night. Well, I wanted to first share this one with you, as I was also able to use it for this week's Simon Says Challenge...which is "Check it out!". They would like us to use plaid, gingham, checks, etc., on our cards. Well here is mine.I used this adorable Cocoa Mouse image from Sweet 'n Sassy. I stamped him and colored him with water color crayons. I then added some brown distressing ink all around him. I layered it onto some checkered PP from Papertrey Ink. I then decided to retry that folded ribbon I so nicely made last week, and it ended up not showing at all...ha ha. Well during the Sweet 'n Sassy release party last night, I learned a much easier way to make this ribbon too. It turned out great...well at least I thought it did...lol. Last, I added the sentiment "How Sweet" which is from the same stamp set as Cocoa.

Well dinner time...I will be back in a bit to share the other cards I made for the challenges. Thanks for stopping by!

Lovely card Jessica, love that gorgeous check paper and what a cute image. I find ribbon doesn't always photograph well too.
Thanks so much for playing along with us at Simon Says Stamp challenge.
