Today’s challenge is a sketch challenge. Be sure to post your direct link on this post, either as a comment or in Mr. Linky and tag your uploads with IHPBB10S.


Here is my card for Kate's sketch;


I used an older Unity set (Life is Fabulous) that I didn't realize Kate was out of.  Serves me right for not checking before I made my project!

This card is simple, and fairly quick to make, thanks to Kate's sketch.  I stamped the half circle image twice to create the circle then coloured it in a little with copic markers.  My colours were all inspired by Capella paper by Basic Grey.  I used classic circle nesties to cut out my image and framed it with a scalloped circle.

I do hope you’ll play along. Deadline to enter is Friday morning 3AM EST.


Stamps: Life is Fabulous (unity stamps)
Paper: capella (basic grey), elephant, coconut swirl, powder (bazzill)
