The Paper Variety Sketch Challenge

The Paper Variety is currently having a dual challenge with ScrapFIT.

That is the sketch at The Paper Variety, and the ScrapFIT portion is to use numbered journaling.

(Supplies: Card stock by Stampin' Up! and The Paper Company. Patterned paper by Little Yellow Bicycle, Basic Grey, and two unknown manufacturers. Stamp by Cocoa Daisy (from the March kit). Ink by VersaMagic. Shimmer ink by Glimmer Mist. Small letter stickers and numeric stickers by October Afternoon. Large letter stickers by Doodlebug. Other stickers and gems by Little Yellow Bicycle.)

Making all those flags using one end of this month's Cocoa Daisy stamp was fun, and I used a lot of scraps, as well as some stickers and gems I've had in my stash a long time. I love the blues and greens together, how those colors compliment such a great photo of my Daniel.

Go check out The Paper Variety and ScrapFIT. There's still time to create a page for both challenges.
