HLS Sketch Challenge ......

Happy Wednesday!

Just a quick post this morning with an entry for the current Happy Little Stampers Sketch Challenge.

It's all going on at the moment at HLS ...... have you heard? ...... they've released their own range of stamps ....... congratulations Kylie!
There's 4 basic sets .... when I say basic they're really useful sets to have in your stamp collection ..... fun Birthday sentiments in a fab font ..... a great Christmas collection too.  Big bold numbers and some gorgeous butterflies.  Check them out on the shop website.

Back to the challenge ....... this is August's Sketch .......

And here's my version ......

I remembered I had a perfect stamp for this challenge ..... the pretty little Magnolia bunting.
Simply stamped across my card, following the sketch design, a tiny bit of masking needed here and there ..... just where the bunting overlaps.  I then coloured it with Distress Inks ........  swiped onto my craft sheet, spritzed with a little water and applied with a brush .... simple!

The words are actually from one of the new HLS stamp sets ...... Bold Birthday Sentiments ..... told you they're really useful sets to have .....  this is such a lovely font!

And in true LindyLou fashion ..... the inside has been decorated too .....

I love how this has turned out ...... I don't do DL sized cards that often .... maybe I should!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.  I'm hoping to be back later with another challenge entry ..... told you I had a busy week!

Cheerio until next time ....
