Sketch, Panda, and QKR Stampede

     Good Friday morning to all of you!  Another new challenge is starting at QKR Stampede this morning and this week we have a sketch challenge.  It's a great sketch; very versatile and fun to use.

     Here's my version and I used QKR Stampede Digi 24320 Panda and Digi 15810 Huggable for the sentiment.

     It may be a bit hard to tell in the photo but this is an easel card.   I left the image black and white, cut it with one of my oval dies from Spellbinders, and added an oval mat, also die cut.  The leaves are cut with my favorite die from my collection of Cheery Lynn dies.  The striped background dp is from SU and has been in my stash more or less forever!  :-D  I added a few green sequins for some sparkle and bling.  Can you believe there are 5 different layers on this otherwise CAS design, not counting the leaves or sequins?  


     That's all for today but we do hope you're going to play along at QKR Stampede this week.  Use the sketch as your basic design and remember you can use any image you like.  If you happen to use an image by QKR, your card will be entered to a separate drawing just for those who used QKR images and that means your chances of winning increase dramatically.  See you there.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
