Sketch Challenge #144

Sketch Challenge #144

Boo! Happy Halloween, cardmakers! Have a safe and fun holiday this week 🙂

Before we get to our sketch, we have a winner to announce from last week’s sketch sponsored by Tonic Studios… (drumroll please)… Marlene D! Congratulations, Marlene! Look for an email with your prize details shortly!

>>>>Sandy sneaking in here too! I finally made a vlog again…wanted to be sure you guys saw it. Back to Julie! <<<<

Ready for today’s sketch, folks? Quick reminder – the heart shape indicates the embellishment of your choice, it doesn’t have to be a heart:

We have two great samples today from cardmaker Cora Jean. She has a blog called Cora Jean’s Paper Playtime, be sure and check it out for card details and more of her cute work. I just love the sentiment on the pretty monochromatic green card, and how she flipped the sketch for the purple card! Thanks so much for these beautiful sample cards, Cora Jean!

Hmm, will you flip the sketch or keep it horizontal? How about one of each? Be sure and come back here to link up what you make so we can all share the inspiration!


  1. Congrats to Marlene! Thanks Cora Jean for two great samples!

  2. Great cards Cora Jean, and I especially like that monochromatic card! Congrats to Marlene too – you’re going to love the Tonic products you get! Thanks to OWH for another fun sketch too!

  3. OMG, I can’t believe I’ve won!! Thank you Tonic Studio for the chance to have your product for my very own. Thank you OWH for the fun sketch last week and this week. Cora Jean I adore your samples for this week. Love the papers and sentiment in the monochromatic card. It shows me it’s possible to match up greens and have it work! I have trouble with green. The vertical card looks elegant and love the scrolls in the hearts mimic the background paper.

  4. Marlene… am so happy for you! You’ll put those punches to good use… Can’t wait to see your great creations.

  5. Thanks Cora Jean for the awesome samples! I love this sketch!

  6. Beautiful cards, Cora!! I printed out the monochromatic green one to CASE, and I just love the vivid purples on your 2nd card! Thanks for the inspiration!!

  7. Great sketch and two excelent sample cards, Cora! Congratulations to Marlene for winning the Tonic give away!

  8. As always — I love the sketch! Sorry I am behind, we had internet issues and I hope they are now fixed. I also hope the storm does not knock our power!! Thinking of EVERY one affected by Hurricane Sandy…sure hope she’s gone soon! 🙂
