We are hosting another Designer Drafts Challenge over on the Paper Smooches Challenge Blog!! =) I just LOVE the sketch and have actually created a couple different designs to share some different ways that you could use the Sketch!! =) I started my Design after being INSPIRED by a Picture from a Magazine that I cut out about a Year Ago!! =)
I keep a Design/Sketch Idea Book and I cut Pictures out of Magazines for Inspiration or Draw Sketches!! I try to get to everything, but find I have WAY more Ideas in my Book than I have time to make/create them all!! I used the New Paper Smooches Frame Die 2 and created the Fin Frame/Sardine Can!! I decided to turn it into a Shaker Card!! I Stamped and Embossed the Fish Image from the Paper Smooches Briny Blue Paper Smooches Stamps Set and then used the coordinating Paper Smooches Briny Blue 1 Die Set to cut it out!! I then used the New Paper Smooches Wave Dies to make the Ocean Tide and I layered both Vellum and Cardstock for a FUN dimensional look!! I created a personalized sentiment using Sentiments from both the Paper Smooches Briny Blue Stamp Set and the We Adore You Stamp Set!! A few Sequins from Neat & Tangled finishes off my First Card!!
For my Second Card I Stamped and Embossed a Butterfly Image from the Paper Smooches Flap Happy Stamp Set onto some Patterned Paper!! I then Fussy Cut it out and used the Paper Smooches Butterfly Duets Die Set to Die Cut a Patterned Paper Butterfly and then traced around the Butterfly Die to create a Vellum Layer that was just alittle bigger for another Layer!! I decided to Cut just the Body of the Butterfly from some Black Cardstock and I layered it over all the Layers to Finish it off!! Then I used the Paper Smooches Scalloped Circle Die Set to create a FUN Layer for the Butterfly to rest on!! I Dry Embossed the Largest Scalloped Circle onto the Card Front and then Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment and my Card was done!!
For my Last Card I created a similar Butterfly Image using the same Paper Smooches Flap Happy Stamp Set and then I also created a Similar Scalloped Circle Background except I used the Larger Dies!! I stamped a couple of the Heart Trail Images also from the same Stamp Set in the Top corners of the card and then I Die Cut one of the Flags from the Paper Smooches Flag Tags Die Set!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from the same Stamp Set after Masking part of it to fit onto my Banner!! I just LOVE the way it turned out!!  =)
 I hope these have given you several different Ideas on ways that you can use the Designer Sketch and that you'll go and check out the rest of the AMAZING PSSPARKS Design Team to see what they have created!! =)
