The Challenge #21 {Sketch &/or Colour}

Sketch Dimensions
(this is only a suggestion)
Card Base: 4.25 x 5.5"
Middle Section: 4 x 4.25"
Long Middle Strip: 1.75 x 5"
*Any Shape for the Butterfly or Large Label Shape

Welcome to The Challenge! Every other week we bring you a colour/sketch combo! You are welcome to combine the colours and sketch or just use one part of the challenge! It is totally up to you! The design team have created inspiring samples to get you into the crafting mood! Come and join us!

For my card, I used some chipboard from Simple Stories and I combined it with a pretty Christmas sentiment from Verve! I used a doily for the main shape in the middle of the sketch and punched out a simple circle; sponging it with some ink. I used both the sketch and the colours from The Challenge. I kept my card fairly simple...letting the designer paper do all the work! I put the tree on the left, rather than the right...and you are welcome to do the same!!

The team has created some more samples to get you into the crafting mood!!! Feel free to create any type of card using either the sketch or the colours or both! Happy crafting!
