The Challenge #27 {Just the Way You Are}

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!

Sketch Dimensions
(this is only a suggestion)
Card Base: 4.25 x 5.5"
Gray Flag: 1.25 x 3.75" (any size will do)
White Flag: 1 x 3" (any size will do)
Butterfly: Any Shape

This week we have a simple sketch and a springy colour combo! I decided to ink up some new Verve called Brighter Days. I didn't want to colour the blooms, so I stamped them onto designer paper and fussy cut them. Then I stamped a leaf from an older Stampin' Up set and fussy cut it as well. I used the Plain Jane Stamp Set called Beautiful from Verve as well.

This month we are thrilled to have Narelle Farrugia as our Featured Designer and this week we are welcoming, Becca Cruger as our Guest! She won our challenge a couple of weeks ago!
