Clearly Inspired Challenge #24

The challenge for today???? A sketch challenge!!!!!! Woohoo!! I love sketch challenges. They are too much fun.

For all of the information and to enter the contest for great prizes, go over to Lori's blog!

Here's this week's sketch ...

So ... what are the rules for this challenge??

- Challenges are now going to be on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month, and you'll have 2 weeks to finish each challenge.

-Challenges can use any stamps or digis from any company

-Only one entry per person per challenge

-Prizes will be given away after both challenges for the month. The number of prizes is determined by the number of participants for the month. For every 20 entries there will be a $10 gift certificate for stamps or digis up for grabs. (For example if over the entire month there were a total of 60 participants in both challenges, there will be 3 $10 gift certificates and 3 of the featured digital images to give away.)

-We will also be giving away the featured digi for every 20 entries!

What did I do with this sketch??

What a fun sketch to work with. I used an 'out of the box' look with the roses, and don't you love that background paper?! I think it is some that was given to me long ago, but it worked perfectly with this card and the tone I wanted on it. The Blooming Bouquet dies were used to cut out the roses and the Tabs & Tags dies were used to cut the sentiment tag. The Cricut and SCAL were used, with svg files, to create the image background layers.

Card Recipe :
Stamps - Roses to Die For
Paper - dp, budding lilac, white
Ink - black, lavender
Copics - R81, R83, R85
Accessories/Tools - Blooming Bouquet dies, cricut, scal, scalloped basic shapes svg, cuttlebug, folder, Tabs & Tags dies, sewing machine, pop dots, pearls, ribbon
