It is June 1st so....time to host another card and layout sketch challenge on the Dolls & Decorations forum. I didn't have to look far for a card sketch this time. Well...geographically spoken it is far.....very far, but actually I found this sketch close to home as the card sketch is designed by my SIL Lisette. She is a great scrapbooker and card maker, and designs gorgeous sketches too.

Here is my take on Lisette's sketch. When I found the sketch on her blog yesterday I knew immediately I wanted to use the Spring Fling collection by Pink Paislee.
Supplies: Bazzill Kraft Cardstock, Pink Paislee Spring Fling PPs, American Crafts ribbon, Making Memories Tiny Alphabet Stickers, and VersaColor Pinecone ink.
I really loved working on this sketch. Thanks for the inspiration, girl! I know that Lisette loves to see your take on the sketch, so if you decide to make a card based on this sketch don't forget to leave a comment with a link on Lisette's blog.
I also posted a layout sketch. This time I chose the latest Pencil Lines sketch (#86) designed by Michele Beck. The beautiful picture of my handsome sweetheart is taken by Florence Bavinck. I think he looks great in this picture. Yeah, I know....I am biased. I really had to use the yummy Sumner PPs by Scenic Route, because the colors match perfectly with Eric's shirt.
Supplies: Bazzill Cardstock, Scenic Route Sumner PPs, Heidi Swapp Chipboard Letters, American Crafts ribbon, cork, Sizzix Stars die, Autumn Leaves Clear Stamps, Versafine Onyx Black, VersaColor Pinecone, Heidi Swapp Edge Distresser and sewing machine.
