Design Team Reveal
Guest Designer: Catherine Pooler
Our Guest Designer, Catherine Pooler created this pretty and colorful card using new Stampin' Up products from the Stampin' Up mini catalog that premiered on May 1 and a Sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping, that you can find at this link

Jennifer used a sketch from Claire Brennan to make this card for a very special cause. To see more about both the sketch artist and the cause, head over to her blog!

 Tracy chose a Bev Rochester sketch for her card this week.  She colored the sweet Sarah Kay stamped image with Copic Markers and used some beautiful K and Company papers.

Angi loves to work with sketches and used the fun one over at Sassy Lil' Sketches for the challenge. This fun page is of her daughter's "Movie Theater" Birthday party. To see more of the fun elements that Angi used be sure to visit her at Cokie Pop Paper.

Kim found her inspiration to create her card from a recent sketch over at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog. Using a dark thread stitch, trim and a bit of distressing, Kim found a way to create a soft and shabby design for a simple greeting card. You can find a list of supplies to re-create this card over at Kim's blog

C found her sketch inspiration this week from I {heart} Sketches and from the absolutely beautiful weather she has enjoyed all weekend. She used some fun paper scraps from Scenic Route and a fun tree from a set by Hampton Arts to create this cheery card for spring!

Hello! I've never linked up to a PaperStar Challenge before so I'm not sure if I'm doing this right. The sketch I found that inspired my Tub Time layout of my granddaughter Charlotte came from

Many thanks for the added challenge!
