Friday Sketch Challenge



Today's card is one I made for Amy R's Friday Sketch at Prairie Paper & Ink. Hers is one of the blogs I like to follow, and this sketch was similar to an idea I had in my head for my friend's birthday--a group of us always get together for birthdays and only funny cards are allowed!--so I decided to use the sketch to guide me. I first saw Skipping Stones Design on Jackie Pedro's blog. Boy do they have some great funny stamp sets! (Stay tuned for another one in a few days.) I paper pieced Prince Charming, and used Smooch to give him a gold crown. Otherwise, it's just paper, ribbon and teeny tiny rhinestones. Oh, and a gold glitter button. Don't want to forget that. :-D Update: My mom is still in the hospital, but continues to recover. Your prayers and well-wishes have been much appreciated, THANK YOU! (Hug)
