TWISTED THURSDAY Sketh Challenge #5

It's Twisted Thursday for Shirley's 2 Girls! Ready for a super sketch and a chance to win your choice of stamp from the S2G product line? This week, Karolyn has created my most challenging sketch to date for the Twisted Thursday challenges! You gotta try this one -- so you can let me know if my Mojo is slipping or if the appearance of simplicity is just an illusion. This week's twist is to use my personal favorite, EMBOSSING. Here are the deets:
  • You are not required to use Shirley's 2 Girls stamps, but if you have them, we'd love for you to use them.
  • Upload your card to your blog and/or favorite online gallery. Please use keywords S2GSC5 and shirleys2girls.
  • Then, post a direct link to your card using Mr. Linky on Karolyn's Blog. You can click on the Gracie Twisted Thursday logo above which will link you directly to Karolyn's blog.
  • Deadline for submitting your card is Sunday, April 5, at midnight PDT.
  • will choose the winner, so everyone has a chance to win their choice of stamp from the Shirley's 2 Girls product line. Plus your card will be showcased on Karolyn's blog as well as the Shirley's 2 Girls store blog.
My sample uses a very funky little Chicca titled Gusto Set (SG59). Check out the crazy shirt that I dressed her in and that wildly fun hair do. Not the greatest photo but if you check back tomorrow, I will be able to capture one in better lighting. Then you will be able to see the vibrant colors and the fun blue wire that I wrapped around. The dry embossing was achieved with my Cuttlebug and the Perfectly Paisley embossing folder. As usual I twisted the sketch and made it my Own. What do you think? Need more inspiration? Check out these fabulous creations by the rest of the Ladies with Attitude DT:
