Take Note of that Sketch

Happy Friday-- I hope a small bit of Spring weather is finding you out there! I am excited to show you my 2nd version of our current sketch-- for my project this week I have embellished a box for keeping greeting cards and I hope you can see the sketch in there somewhere (I promise it's there on the front :):))!

I have used the For the Record collection by Echo Park and I love these papers-- a little bit bright, a little bit vintage, with black accents, it's perfect! I used several of the sticker accents on the front, along with some lace and Prima trellis roses. My roses were originally white but I sprayed them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Brick to match the paper.

Inside I created dividers with different categories of greeting cards. Now it's all ready to fill up and organize some great handmade cards.

Now, it's your turn-- let's see how you interpret this sketch and enter it in our current Beary Sweet Challenge before April 14 11:59 EST. I can't wait to see your beautiful creations!

Jamie, you need to share your secret with me for covering these tins. I still can't get it right. Great job! I love it!

Thanks ladies, you are making me smile!
Hey Kimm, I have tried many different things for covering tins and what I have found works the best is glue dots. I have tried gluesticks (peels off eventually) and I did one at a class once where they had us use rubber cement, this worked pretty good but you had to use a lot and it can still peel off. So I just get out my glue dots and use a ton and it sticks forever!
