Stampin' For All design Team Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone,

Today it is my turn to do the challenge over on the Stampin' For All Facebook group - do join us over there if you haven't already! And today's challenge is a sketch challenge. Here is the sketch I came up with.

Quite an easy sketch - or so I thought until I tried making a card to fit it! I had had an idea in my head for a while but it turned out to be one of those ideas that just did not work out when I made it. After several unsuccessful attempts I finally came up with this card.

Detailed with Love Stampin Up Sketch challenge

The background paper is from the Tropical Escape pack. I have paired it with a strip of Granny Apple Green Textured ribbon and then have heat embossed, in white, three little accents from the Detailed With Love stamp set. They are embossed on Blushing Bride and then mounted on mats of Soft Sea Foam. The sentiment is from the Amazing Life stamp set, stamped in Gray Granite and punched out with the Classic Label punch.

I'm still not entirely happy with my card but ran out of time. If I can find a few minutes later this week I might have another go.

I'd be delighted if you could enter our challenge. It is all just for fun but I love seeing all of your creations. There will be an album over on Stampin' For All for you to post your entries and then next week I will do a blogpost, sharing all the entries.

Back soon,
