Sketch N Scrap Layout Challenge #47

We are doing something fun at Sketch-N-Scrap for our latest sketch. We are teaming up with Scrap Our Stash. So not only are you to put together a fabulous layout based off of this sketch, you also must use 1 punch and 2 different border punches in your layout.
I stayed away from pattern paper for this layout and went with primary solids. A touch of color mist and the use of the various punches was enough to spice it up.

Products used in this layout:
Card Stock • White
Card Stock • Red
Card Stock • Yellow
Card Stock • Blue
Echo Park • Little Boy • Element Stickers
Echo Park • Little Boy • Journaling Cards

Sketch N Scrap Card Challenge #15

Here is a card I made using the sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap. With the holidays surrounding us this time of year, it's nice to sit down for a quiet hour or two putting together cards for friends and family.
 I have an obsession with washi tape, but I don't use it that often. I've vowed to get better about that and have promised myself not to buy anymore until I've used some that I already have! For the paper strips in the center, I used my Ranger Distress Inks to dye white card stock to match the washi tape colors. The inks make for endless color combinations!
The embellishment in the middle is made using a die from PaperTrey Ink. Their fillable frames are the perfect sizes for cards, and they have an endless supply of stamps that work with them.

Here is today's sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap. Another great 4 photo sketch, I can't wait to see what everyone does with it. Don't forget to post yours on the SNS blog!
For my layout, I chose 4 photos of Brett from last Christmas. He had gotten a remote control plane and was so excited. On the way home he refused to set it down even though he was very tired. He fell asleep right away in the car but kept a hold on his new prize the whole way home.
