What If? Wednesday Sketch Challenge

Today is Wednesday so it is time for another fun challenge at Repeat Impression's blog,
The House that Stamps Built. We are challenging you to design and blog a card using this great sketch:
I used one of my favorite RI stamps for this card- Rebecca- and I paper pieced her dress and pinafore and hat. Isn't she sweet? Instead of a ribbon or strip of paper on the left side, I tried something new with a Martha Stewart larger border punch and I really like how it turned out. Two pieces of white cardstock were punched and attached to the sides of the front and back of the card. I added some flower gems and rounded some edges to complete the card.

So come join us and make a card based on this sketch. You have almost two weeks to enter each of our challenges and so you also have almost a week (until next Tuesday) to join in MY Designer Choice Challenge to make a child's card using embossing- wet or dry or both. Please visit the Repeat Impressions blog for details on both of these challenges and also to find out what you can win!

I am entering this card in the challenge at Wee Memories for All Things Adorable.

Stamping smiles, Karen

Pretty card, Karen! Nice paper piecing of Rebecca's outfit and the border punch edge is a great idea!
