In Style Stamps - Thankful Thursday

Every Thursday on In Style Stamps we have a Thankful Thursday sketch. This week was the turn of Maria to create the sketch.

Here is the sketch

And here is my card
For the main image I have used Ginger and done a combination of colouring and paper piecing on her. I then sponged chalk inks around her. All the papers used are from a PaperMania pad called Eastern Blooms. I used a rub on to make the sentiment on the chipboard embellishment and then I thread a ribbon through. The chipboard flowers looked a little plain so I added a clear gem to each of them and then 3 gems along the bottom left of the layered image.

It would be great to see some of you European girls joining in with this sketch as In Style are a brand new company in the US and not well know yet in the UK. You don't have to use an In Style image you can use any stamp as long as you keep to the sketch. There is also a great prize up for grabs.

Here are all the details

Your entry with a link to your creation must be posted on the comments section at the InStyle Stamps Blog by Wednesday, January 21, 11:59 PM P.S.T. The design team will look at all the entries and come up with their top 3, and Virginia will make the final decision. The winner will be announced the following day. You will have 48 hours to claim your prize. If the lucky winner hasn’t come forward after 48 hours, another winner will be selected.

Why not have a go?
