FINALLY! The long awaited sketch!

You would think that since I am the one issuing the challenges, I would be a bit more on the ball and have the challenge ready before I actually announce it. Hmmm...not so much - LOL! it is:

It is hand drawn and VERY simple, so my apologies for that. I have forgotten much of what I learned when I was taking digital scrapbooking classes. This would have allowed me to make a fancy, computer generated sketch. However, I have had this idea for a sketch in my head for a while and the card came out EXACTLY the way I saw it in my head! Don't you just LOVE it when that happens???

Here is the card I created using my sketch:
I'm loving the Bella Bleu papers with Kraft and Not Quite Navy. I'm thinking I would have been just a titch happier if I had used Very Vanilla Craft Ink, but I don't have any in my stash (yet!), so went with Whisper White instead.

I'll be adding this card to a Bella Bleu class I'll be having later this month, so I'm not providing my ultra secret measurements - LOL - though savvy stampers (especially those with SU! tools) will be able to figure it out without a problem, I'm sure!

What do you think?

STAMPS: Simple Said
INK: Whisper White Craft and Not Quite Navy Classic
PAPER: Whisper White, Kraft and Not Quite Navy Cardstock, Bella Bleu DSP

Happy Stampin'!


  1. oh cripes now I DO think I am last taxi off the rank....but I am busy trying to nail stampscapes images...the colouring part! We sat yesterday and played and played ....oh and played some more...were not at all happy with our results...decided to get the vino out....and wow...we came up with some pretty good ones then....(and they still look pretty this morning, to boot!)

  2. I am glad I am not the only one who drew theirs by hand :). This is a great sketch, and a gorgeous card.
