*Little Paper Shop's* Sneak Preview!!


Happy TGIF!!!

Today *Little Paper Shop* is kicking off the October Sneak Preview!!! Julia will release *4* beautiful new Sets on October 14th!!! I'm looking forward showing you what I've created - especially since I couldn't play last month!!!

My card measures 3 1/4" x 6 1/2". I used *Little Paper Shop's* WCMD Sketch #2 which you can find right here.

The first Set we are showing today is called *Flyin' By*. I think it's totally cute - I always wanted to have an *owl* and I'm so happy that Julia created this fun Set!!!

About my card - the card base is Whisper White. I added a CB embossed panel using the *Tiny Bubbles* on Really Rust CS. The four squares in the BG are Sage Shadow layered on Chocolate Chip. The owl image was inked up with Chocolate Chip and Sage Shadow. Next I pierced around the image and layered it onto a Really Rust CS that I raised with Stampin Dimensionals before I layered it onto Chocolate Chip CS. The image was also inked in Chocolate Chip and to dress the card up I used the retired CC Poly-Twill Ribbon.

Hope you like it???

Remember you can still enter in the WCMD Sketch Challenges until Saturday - Julia is giving a way prizes - don't miss it!!!

BTW - I have one of each new Stamp Set from September's Release - Christmas Wishes, Global, Little One and Snowflakes - that I'll be giving away for my *40th* Birthday Bash starting next week!!!
