Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Anything Goes Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Anything Goes Blog Hop!

If you came here from Leah's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog.   

 The theme for this hop is Anything Goes. So, we are using our imaginations to create fun projects using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files.  

For my project today I thought it would be fun to use a sketch as my inspiration.  I found this sketch over at The Deconstructed Sketch.  You can view more about the Sketch DS187 here.  The sketch is below.  

Here is my take on the sketch.  

For the card base & my patterned paper background I used the NEW Stitched Shapes Cutting Files.  The sentiment shape is from the Sentiment Spots 1 Cutting Files.  The hearts are from the Flamingos in Love Cutting Files.  The Raccoon is from the Forest Critters Cutting Files.  The Circle is from the Ornament Trio Cutting Files.  The Rectangle is from the A2 Card Bases 1 Cutting Files.  

The sentiment is from My Creative Time's Lots of Love Stamp set.
