This months Authentique Paper Sketch Contest is going to be fun!! As in, flirty little banner fun! I actually really liked this sketch, and wanted to show off a little bit of Loyal and Delightful. As you've probably surmised, I already have one little girl. And as you may not know, we have one more on the way! We found out that what I could have sworn was a he (totally different pregnancies... I mean chocolate was icky!), is actually a little she...
So the boyish papers of Loyal were off limits, right? No! Not one bit! I simply used the more muted versions on both the background (Faithful), the backing on the banner (Steady), and the mat (Devoted) for the photograph. Then I layered pieces of Delightful, to make it a little more feminine.
The sweet little sentiment that was actually a Delightful Diction phrase was just too perfect too, "Little girls dreams are of magical things".
For the card, I used a matching blue cardstock base, layered and embellished entirely with Loyal products. The base of the decorated portion is simply Steady, with a Durable fussy-cut section, layered with a matching ribbon. The banner is a bit of twine, using the hinge stickers from the Details page, that are cut in half and pop-dotted. I added a little bit of bling with some green rhinestones. For the sentiment, I just took a Details sticker, embossed a sentiment and added it to the card.
If you want to play along, simply create a great card or layout using one of the following sketches. Be sure to post in on the Authentique Paper blog for some fun prizes! Good luck!
