Utah Divas International - Sketch Challenge

Hello Friends,

I am so excited to let you know I am now a part of the UTAH DIVAS INTERNATIONAL (UDI) Saturday Sketch Team.  UDI was formed 5 years ago as a way for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators to form friendships and share ideas, tips and techniques with each other.  If you are a Demonstrator and are interested in joining, shoot me an e-mail at If you are interested in becoming a demonstrator, email me at

For this weeks sketch challenge, I used Crushed Curry, one of Stampin' Up!'s In Colors.  It is a color that I haven't really fallen in love with but knew when I decided which stamp set I was going to use, I just had to break open the pack of Card Stock.  I knew Very Vanilla would be my coordinating color and I also used Basic Black.  I stamped the honey pot stamp from the 'Just Buzzin' By Stamp Set in Versamark ink.  The Crushed Curry Ribbon added a soft yet elegant touch.  I colored the cute bee with the Crushed Curry marker. I am thrilled Stampin' Up! sells the In Color markers. 

Stamp Set - Just Buzzin' By (113228)
Card Stock: -Crushed Curry, (115319) Basic Black, (102851) Very Vanilla, (101650)
Inks - Basic Black Classic Ink, (101179) Versamark, Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Marker, (116329)
Embellishments - Crushed Curry 1/2" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, (115614)
Accessories - 1 3/8" Circle Punch, (104401) Scallop Circle Punch, (109043)

I used the Marker for the honey in the inside of the card. 
It added just a little 'extra touch'.

Hope you enjoyed my take on the sketch challenge.  Be sure to take a look at what my friends came up with by checking out the Saturday Sketch Challenge at
