March Sketch Challenge at LYB

It's time again for another sketch challenge at Little Yellow Bicycle and boy do we have a treat for you! As we wait for Spring with baited breath, tomorrow is the release of the lovely Elizabeth Park Collection.  This month we would love to see pages with our BRAND new Elizabeth Park collection, however we know many of you are just now getting your hands on the Twig collection and still want to see plenty of pages as well.
I wanted to emphasize Little Yellow Bicycle embellishments and especially the awesome canvas sticker borders. They are available with many of our collections and add great color and texture to a project. The Elizabeth Park collection includes this super cute birds on a wire canvas border sticker which was a fun compliment to the photos of my daughter playing on the ropes at the park.
It's fun to combine the different LYB embellishments to create a unique title.  "Welcome, Spring! Enjoy" is a combination of Elizabeth Park Fresh Verse and Chipboard Stickers.  No need for alphabets when you have wonderful sentiments built right into the embellishments.
One of the newest and most exciting Little Yellow Bicycle embellishments are these gorgeous flowers included in the Elizabeth Park Paper Flower Kit. If you love the look of homemade flowers, but have no idea how to make them or the energy to figure it out, these beautiful little gems come pre-cut and scored to make it easy to fold in all the right places. They also layer perfectly for added dimension.
Who can get enough of these gorgeous dimensional stickers with butterflies???  The added layers of patterned paper make these an extra special embellishment.  Adding a bit of florist wire for antennae, bling for the body and floss for the trail easily make these fluttery friends come to life.

Please see the Little Yellow Bicycle blog or facebook page for more details on the contest rules.  Hope to your wonderful work soon.

Thank you for stopping by -

Wonderful sketch, as always, Liz, and I love your page, especially how you did your title! I just got my Twig stuff, but MAYBE I can get some Eliz. Park before the end of the month. I used to spend hours in that park in Hartford, Ct, during my nursing school years....fond memories!
