The Challenge #86 {A Sketch}

Hello and Welcome to The Challenge! 
Each week we have a fun challenge for you to try!!! We do a different style of challenge each week!  We like to mix things up and keep them fresh! 

This week we have a Sketch Challenge for you!

We will announce last week's winners on Saturday. 
The linky for last week's challenge is still open until Noon (PDT) today! 

Sketch Dimensions (Approximate)
Layer 1- 4.25 x 5.5"
Layer 2-3.25 x 5"
Layer 3-2.75 x 4.5"
Layer 4- 1.25 x 4.25"

For my card, I decided to get out some of my favourite Verve stamps! I coloured the flowers from Beautiful Things with my Copic markers and stamped one of the pretty sentiments from Potter's Clay.

The design team have created some inspiration to get you in the crafting mood! 
Come and join us! 

We also have a special guest with us! Welcome, Julee Tilman!
