This little sushi chef is cute beyond words isn't he. I've used him on another card to offer up some inspiration for the brand new challenge up at SugarPea Designs. Now read closely because this is NOT the monthly challenge. This is a separate SKETCH challenge that starts today and you DO NOT have to use a SugarPea Designs stamp to play along. Wendy is offering up a $5.00 gift certificate to the SugarPea Designs store to the challenge winner. The winner will be announced April 13th.
Here's the fun sketch for the challenge.
Ashley Cannon Newell of Papertrey Ink posted a tutorial on how to create this fun angled background with your scraps and I decided to give it a try for my card. I love how it turned out and will be using it again I'm sure. I added a little hand stitching too and some vellum that I have been enjoying playing with lately. It's under the chef and the sentiment banner at the top.
Hope you'll come play along. It's a super easy sketch and remember you DO NOT have to use a SugarPea Designs stamp to play along although we'd love to see them if you do have them.
Have a fantastic Monday!
