QKD - Royal Sketch Monday!!!

Hello!!!! Welcome to a fabulous Royal Sketch Monday!!!

Above is the sketch that we're working with today!!! Such a fun one!!!

First and foremost! =) If you've arrived here 'just because' I thank you for visiting!!! But you should have arrived here from Penny's blog as we're hoppin' right along!! If you didn't you'll definitely want to start at the beginning of the hop so you don't miss one of our Design Team's fabulous creations!

I wanted to steer away from the holiday cheer for this one as most of what we've all been working on is one kind of holiday project/card or whatnot! =)

I grabbed this delicious leopard print (roar!) paper from my stash knowing exactly which stamps I wanted to use!! The card base is 5"x5"...a standard go-to size for me.

I cut all of the circles for the background using my various SU! punches ranging in size from 1 3/4" all the way down to 3/4". I layered them on the background as close to the sketch as I could ;)

I then used black and brown as the decorative strip on the left, zig zag stitching them together. I used the adorable skull from the Happy Skullz Birthday Set - also quite a go-t0 for me as well as the star from the Party Like A Rockstar Set. Another MUST HAVE!!! Each of these sets are a BARGAIN at $6.99 each!!!

I inked the stars up in SU! Basic Black ink on a variety of scraps that I had in my drawer and then punched them out with the SU! star punch. I adhered them with pop-dots for some great added dimension.

The skull was inked also in the same black and then glittered up with my gold paint pen as well as some blingidy bling bling with gold glitter on the teeth!!

I matted the 'tag' on basic black cardstock and tied it with some polka dotted ribbon and attached it with a pop-dot.

I think it's SUPER cute!!!

I hope you enjoyed my creation!! Now...keep hopping along!!! Let's see what Linda has in store for you today!!!
