Everything But the Kitchen Sink Challenge 27

Hello! It's time once again for an EBTKS sketch challenge! Hope you're ready to be inspired!

Before we get to the sketch, I want to mention our fabulous sponsor for the challenge...Paper Maniac! They offer an awesome variety of crafting goodies, including stamps, inks, Copic markers, ribbons, and Nestabilities, just to name a few. Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 gift card to Paper Maniac.

Our hostess this time around is our founder and fearless leader, Courtney. She found inspiration for the sketch in this cute picture frame...







And here's the sketch Courtney created. Fun, right?















Here's my take on it. I kept thinking about a fun way to do the stripes, and when I came across this stamp in my stash, the rainbow idea popped into my head immediately.

Be sure to stop by the EBTKS blog to see how ALL the designers interpreted the sketch.

We'd love to see YOUR take on this sketch, too! Link up your finished creation on the EBTKS blog. You have until midnight CDT on Sun., Oct. 24 to be eligible for the Paper Maniac prize.

Now get creating! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Stamps: Friendly Advice (Inkadinkado)
Paper: Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Old Olive, Brocade Blue, PTI white
