Diva Sketch Challenge 53
Diva Sketch Challenge 53

Its that time of the week again – Saturday – so another Utah Divas Sketch Challenge!

I love this sketch!

To start with this card I first chose the stamp set I wanted to use which was Dreams du Jour as I’ve had it for some time and havent used it much at all. Then I decided on which pack of Designer Series Paper I wanted to use and went with Bella Rose DSP as I wanted to make a feminine card.

I find if I’m using DSP on a card then if I use the colours that is in that pack and the card comes together quite well. However in saying this I did change the colours about 4 times before getting a combination I was happy with!

Here’s my card …

DSC53I am rather happy with the final card and the taffeta ribbon is a must.

I did make a similar card to this one the other day and will share that during the week so when I saw this sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to do!

I do love this little Dreams du Jour set but have struggled with what to do with it and think this has shown that you dont need a huge stamp set to create a nice card – you can do that with just one stamp!

The dreams image has dimensionals behind it and I’ve layered the flower at the top for more dimension.

Hopefully you can see what I mean in the picture – mind you its hard to get a good ‘up close’ picture of something so small without having the “top of the line Canon Camera”!

Just before I go I wanted to let you know that I now have a lovely Stampin Up!® Demonstrator Business Website. It has all things ‘businessy’ there and you can view projects there from both myself and Stampin Up! You can also view my Calendar to see what events and classes I have coming up and also sign up online to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and part of my team.

Its all pretty cool and its purple too!! If you would like to have a look you can find it at www.leonieschroder.stampinup.net and I’ll be popping a link in my sidebar soon too. So go have a look and let me know what you think 😉


  1. This is gorgeous, Leonie! The colors and image are so pretty, and I like the look of the dotted line you added.

    That’s great you have a DBWS! I’m sure you’ll update it much better than I update mine (guilty look crossing my face).
