Sprinkled, and a huge thanks to you all...

LAST post for Stuck on U Sketches

   My dear friends, I can not believe this huge part of my life is now coming to an end! Nanne, my best crafty friend and co-leader have run SOUS for almost 6 years! Helping lead and organize so many talented and amazing ladies. Not to mention choosing many challenges and creating original sketches. Honestly, I think my skills really took off after starting with SOUS. I have much to be grateful for! And most importantly, the friendships I've made! Including meeting fellow team mate Tracey, when she visited me in California from Australia! And of course, meeting my Finnish buddy, Nanne! Who knew I'd have a best friend across the world! Amazing!

   So our last, very last challenge to share with you to help us take off from where we've been...Die Cut Challenge, WINGS. Birds, butterflies, airplanes, fairies, get the idea. 

   I mixed my Silhouette die cut birdie with the frames and sentiment metal dies by Papertrey Ink. The add some dimension to the card, I cut the frames and sentiments many times and adhered them together. Adding a line of Glossy Accents covered in glitter to the border helps add another detail but also pull in the stamped, embossed and glittered sun. This was my first experience using an embossing powder that turns sticky once heated. It was SO cool and for sure the easiest thing I have done to use loose powder.

   Thanks again my friends and our SOUS followers...for making us one of the original challenge sites and a go-to place for lots of project inspiration! Blessings to you all!
