LAD Sketch

This week's LAD sketch, which you can find in the LAD forum here, is one that I'm sure will be referred to again and again. Stripes of patterned paper make this one a snap! And, it is a good sketch for using up little scraps of the paper you love!
I stared with a white card base, which I know you can't see really well...sorry! The next layer is Baja Breeze. I then cut three coordinating papers (retired SU paper) and taped them to my Baja Breeze layer. I stamped my cute little duck, from the LAD Nursery set and colored it in with an aqua painter and pink pirouette ink. Then I stamped the little sentiment under it. I colored the beak with a saffron marker. I then punched the little image out with my 1 3/8" circle punch and mounted it on a Kiwi Kiss scalloped circle. I attached it to my card with dimensionals and then outlined the duck with diamond stickles. I tied the bottom of the Baja Breeze layer with some pink pirouette ribbon...love that stuff! For the final detail, I attached the Baja Beeze layer with dimensionals to the white card base, for some added dimension!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! We're all so happy...we're FINALLY getting real snow!! It's been snowing all day...yea!! Have a super one!!
