PPSC5 - Seeing double

Hello again!

What is going on?  Third day in a row posting??  No wonder I have been pressed for time lol.  I am back to invite everyone to play along in the Playing in Paradise Sketch Challenge.  All you have to do is make something using the sketch.  This month, the super talented Linda designed a beautiful double page layout sketch.  But, as you may know, I feel obliged to represent the card makers out there, so I turned her sketch into a lovely card layout.  I created an easel card using the first page for the cover and the second for the inside.  This was a really fun and easy sketch to use!

The card propped open:

And open laying flat, revealing the second 'photo' spot which was left blank for writing a personal message:

Here is the wonderful sketch:

If you haven't been by the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog, you'll want to make sure you pop on over.  The team has made some beautiful projects to inspire you!  Then come join in the fun :)  We'd love to see what you make with the sketch and there is always a fun prize up for grabs.


Stamps - Crafter's Companion 'Relax' from the Mulberry Wood range.  Image stamped with black Stazon for watercolouring; sentiments stamped with Memento black.
Paper - 300g hot pressed watercolour paper, Bazzill cardstock, Echo Park Here & Now DP
Colouring - Distress inks (black soot, frayed burlap, peacock feathers, peeled paint, spun sugar, tattered rose, walnut stain)
Other - Kaiser Craft lace, pearls, Spellbinders Fancy Tags 2, flowers from my stash

Thanks so much for stopping by and for taking the time to leave a comment.  I really appreciate each one :)

Have a great weekend!  Hugs,

What an awesome job you did with the sketch Dawn. This card is just SO cute! I love those spellbinders tags. How clever to cut them in half!

Darling easel card, Dawn! I especially like the DPs done in the panels like that, and the really super SWEET image and soft colors there. How could something be more cuter than a teddy bear (or is it a Koala? LOL) holding his little puppy - just hanging loose and enjoying life. The sentiment is great! hugs, de
