This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Birthday Card - Berry71Bleu Sketch Challenge

Hello Everyone

I am up on the Berry71Bleu blog at the moment, with my take on the sketch challenge this month.

Here's the sketch.

I went with a mixed media Birthday card and used some Steampunk Debutante from Graphic 45.

I did some embossing and painting on the cogs, along with some copper crackle on the background, to add to this Steampunk style.

I used a Penny Black stamp for the Birthday sentiment.

There is still time for you to play along.  You have until the 30th Sep.

There is also some BoBunny goodies up for grabs.

Long a favorite of card makers and scrapbookers, BoBunny papers, stickers, albums, brads, buttons, trinkets, jewels, ribbons, stamps and kits are always hot topics on consumer message boards.

Her team of graphic designers, each with different styles and expertise, help to create the variety of product lines that BoBunny is known for.
