Ippity Chick Sketch Challenge

Have you checked out the Ippity Chick Challenges yet? Each week there is a new sketch challenge with a prize offered by an Ippity Chick... and this week I am the sponsor... so check it out HERE! Play along with me and post your creation for a chance to win an Ippity set of your choice!

I created my card for the challenge using one of my favorite sets - Music of the Heart. I stamped the music using brown ink directly onto the background paper from the Minuet collection by Memory Box. For the ribbon, I decided it was finally time to use some of the HUGE spool of seam binding I have, and try my hand at dying it to match. I used the Ballet Blue classic re-inker, adding a few drops to some water. I let the binding soak for a few minutes, then rinsed it out. I think it turned out very pretty! And I love how easy it is to tie nice bows with the soft texture of the seam binding. I finished the card off with some cute little star buttons from my stash, attached with glue dots.

I have this and all other Ippity sets in stock and ready to ship - check out my sales blog HERE

And now it is your turn to create a card based on the sketch - and don't forget to upload it to the challenge site HERE so you will have a chance to win an Ippity set! I can't wait to see your creations:)
