Happy Thursday!!!

Today is Sketch 21 Challenge & Product challenge over at Limelight Papercrafts! We were asked to play with Tulle. What a fun embellie to work with. I love the look of pleating so I decided to use that technique with the Splash Tulle.
For this challenge, if you don't have tulle, don't worry! Use another ribbon, lace, cloth....or even a tulle skirt image! OR...skip the tulle all together. We still want to see what you can do with this sketch!

My card base is SU chocolate chip otherwise all the other papers are ala October Afternoon. I absolutely adore the stuff!!! The buttons are from my vintage collection :)

Check out the Limelight DT for their sketch cards:

Here are the deets:

Use the sketch provided and think TULLE! You can CERTAINLY be flexible with your interpretation of tulle, and you may definitely skip it if you don't have any!! In fact, we hope you win if you do not have tulle....because we'll get to send you some! :)

**Key word for SCS upload is LLPC021.

**Post a comment with a link to your card by Sunday, May 17th, at midnight (or before winner is drawn Monday a.m.) on the Limelight blog.

**PRIZE ~ Five yards of tulle of the winner's choice!(Winner is chosen randomly from all participants.)

ALL ORDERS of $35 or more will receive one jar of Shimmerz for FREE!!

I had an interesting lesson in Aikido that I'm still "paying" for...2 words for you = backwards somersaults...My body feels like I've been hit with the flu, someone keeps telling me it is a good kind of hurt..lol.

I hope that you are having a great week...tomorrow is Friday!! Woo Hooo...

I have 2 posts for today so make sure you check out the other one :)

  10. Great work, again. I hope your body makes a quick recovery. Try laying with your butt on a rolled towel and your legs up the wall, your back on the floor. This is a stretch I learned and if you do it for like 10 minutes you will feel like you took an hour nap. Try it!!!
