Pink Persimmon sketch and CPS card

The theme for today's post - Pink Persimmon! And if you like winning goodies and if you like sketches, then pay close attention.
1. The challenge for today is to use the above sketch.
2. Link your creation to my blog post and you will be in the running to win the set of stamps below. This is the set of stamps that I used for my card using the sketch.
3. Each design team member created a card for the sketch and each one used a different stamp set. You can be in the running for every one of the stamp sets if you create a different card or other project using the sketch for each blog that you participate on and link your card to that blog.
4. You can find the list of design team blogs on the Pink Persimmon site. You don't have to use Pink Persimmon stamps if you don't have any.
5. Post your card to my blog or to one of the other blogs by Feb. 28th.
6. You can turn the sketch to whatever angle you would like and you can create a card, layout or other project using it.
(ps. sign up for the Pink Persimmon newsletter while you are there. They include some great ideas in each newsletter making it so worth getting)
Here is my card using the sketch and the "You're a Jewel" stamp set.
I used one of the bigger buttons and one of the tiny buttons and the sentiment for my card.
The buttons are accented with Copic markers and then the entire background is sprayed with Memories Mist spray by Stewart Superior. The tiny buttons are accented with rhinestones.
And, I also used some Pink Persimmon stamps for my Card Positioning Systems card for this week.
These papers by American Crafts are so fun and girly.
The buttons from a different stamp set were stamped on the woodgrain patterned paper and I used tiny brads in the button holes instead of thread.
The lines for the journaling stamp were stamped on vellum, the sentiment was stamped on one of the lines and I punched this out with a scallop circle punch. Machine sewing was used as an accent.
And some fun photos...
Guess what we did yesterday? Because of the storms we have had and the big waves, there is a good amount of sea glass on the beaches. This is my stash. My husband and I spent a good amount of time hunting.
The waves are so much fun to watch and so here is one view with a sailboat in the background.
We stayed long enough to see the sunset.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

  1. The black red and yellow look fabulous together. The sea glass is so pretty, I never see it on the beaches in our area.

  2. I love this card! I am going to try to participate in teh challenge if I get time to put something together.

    I love your photos. I love the ocean.

  3. We just got back from Hawaii. Found a very small beach with tiny pieces of sea glass. I would be so happy to see a beach with big pieces. What state do you live in?
    Have a great day!
