Hello dear friends and followers hope each of you are doing very well! This month at 52CCT it's my turn to be the hostess - I'm so thrilled! At 52CCT we start off the first week of each month with a sketch challenge. Here's what I designed for you to try this week for our 52CCT Sketch Challenge #22:
I thought this would be a great way to display some of our patterned paper. Please take a look at what I made to inspire you:
A while ago I was lucky enough to win some blog candy from Loll Thompson at Stamping with Loll (Loll's Card Candy - Give Away #6) that had some gorgeous poinsettias and branch sprigs. So excited to be able to use them on my card this week - thanks again Loll! Also playing with my new thinlits expressions die (Stampin Up!) - isn't it fabulous?
Overall very pleased with how this turned out - with the exception of one small boo-boo. Can you spot my boo-boo in this card?
I hope that you will decide to join us this week at give the sketch a go. Remember that a sketch is just an aid to put a framework around your ideas. You can switch up the shapes and orientation to fit your creativity. As long as we can still see the main essence of the sketch we are happy :o)
The rest of my super talented and creative DT members over at 52CCT have made some gorgeous cards to share with and inspire you as well so please go visit them.
Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
