limelight sketch and product focus AND new blog candy winner

Gooood Morning! It is the 5th so that means it is limeLIGHT Papercrafts sketch and product focus day! We have a great sketch and our product today is ric rac.

Oh, and because I didn't hear back from the winner of my blog candy (the silver rhinestones graciously donated by Mandy) I had to draw a new name. The NEW winner is...Missy!!! Yay Missy! Please e-mail me your address so Mandy can get those rhinestones out to you!

Now...onto ric rac fun!

RIC RAC ROCKS!
As a trim or to complete a scene,
Ric rac can be used on anything!
Used on a card or used on a layout,
Ric rac will make your creation stand out!

It's that time again, everyone! Time for our sixteenth installment of the Limelight Papercrafts Sketch and Product Challenge! Our theme for this challenge is RIC RAC ROCKS! Your challenge is to use ric rac on your card or layout! We have the COOLEST 1.5" ric rac from May Arts here at Limelight Papercrafts...Boy is that ric rac HUGE!! It is so fun to work with, so be sure to pick some up if you don't already have some! If you do not have the large ric rac, incorporate some of the skinny ric rac into your design. Don't have ANY ric rac? SHAME SHAME!! Just kidding. ;) Just create the ric rac pattern with a wavy-cut paper!

Important info:
*Key word for SCS upload is LLPC016.
*Post a comment with a link to their card to this post on Mandy's blog by Sunday night (March 8) at midnight. Mandy will choose a winner sometime Monday morning (so you really just have to post it before she chooses the winner!!).

Prize is one yard of EACH of the four new 1.5" Ric Rac ribbons from May Arts!

Now just a few deets about the card I made. The patterned paper is from the Marrakech paper pack from Basic Grey, a wonderful image from Unity Stamps, the fun Parrot Green ric rac, So Saffron grosgrain, and for a little bling I added some yellow Kaisercraft Rhinestones and outlined the sun/rays with glitter pen.

So...whatcha got? You got some ric rac at your house? Well, you definitely need to pull it out and try it with Mandy's sketch...HERE. Remember to follow the directions above for keyword and such.

See you tomorrow with my limeLIGHT project reveal AND some super exciting information about...well...you'll just have to wait and see!
