A new crafty challenge for you!

In the way of a sketch!

I just love sketches! They're a perfect way to help get your creative juices flowing. It's like having a road map to a destination you want to go.  Treat it like a plug and play. Fill in the spaces with things you have on and and viola! A beautiful card emerges! 

The Crafty Collaborations Crew has a fun card sketch for you today.  Each of us have taken this sketch as inspiration and created something fabulous to share with you. So, be sure to visit all of the designers' pages to see them all!

Let's have some fun shall we? 

I'm using the Friendly Hello stamp set and DSP combo from the upcoming Sale-a-Bration brochure. It's beautiful, isn't it? 

Sale-a-Bration is my favorite time of year! For every $50 or $100 you order,, you get to choose a FREE gift!! 
I love getting FREE GIFTS! 

One thing to remember about sketches is that they are a basic guide or outline for what you should do. For example, in the sketch it shows a darker layer over the bottom half of the card. I opted to use the same layer over the whole card front, and then stamped some flowers along the same area.

I layered a strip of the Designer Series Paper, that's thicker than the sketch, across the bottom portion. Then, I used the Layering Circles Dies to layer a Pale Papaya scalloped circle behind the Basic White stamped layer. 
And finally, in place of the 3 dots, I stamped a sentiment in a rich bold black. 

I love using sketches, especially when I'm feeling a crafter's block. It helps to get the creative juices flowing. 

Be sure to hop around to all of the designers listed below, to see their interpretations of the sketch. It's always amazing how differently they all look. :-)
