Clearly Inspired Challenge #30 - Sketch Challenge!

I know. I know!! It's been forever since I've posted. I'm truly very sorry. With VBS going on, I just couldn't get it together to get anything on here. I even missed doing the last Clearly Inspired Challenge .... and I HATE that!! So, what's our challenge today?! It's a SKETCH challenge!!!

So ... what's the sketch look like?? Here ya go ...

Isn't that just gorgeous?! I LOVED playing with this one.

Here's my creation.

This is such an odd color combo for me. Not anything like I normally pick, so when I look at it, I don't realize, at first, that I did it. Hahaha.

The circle layer is distressed on the edges, and VersaMark ink was applied to the distressing. I think this added just a touch more texture and a little 'wild' feel to the card.

Card Recipe :
stamps - Scriptures of Hope
paper - pink, dp, yellow, white
ink - pink, VersaMark
Copics - N/A
Accessories - Bold Butterflies Dies, Cuttlebug, folder, distresser, ribbon, pop dots

Let's see what you can do! I know you have fantabulous ideas, and I want to see them!!

Here are the details of our challenges....

-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!
