Sketch Challenge #179

Sketch Challenge #179

Good Morning Peeps!! I love you all and you have really been rockin these skethes! Your cards have so much beauty, and so much inspiration that they will get anyone’s mojo working. Tip: When you visit a website, like ours, don’t just LOOK at the pictures. Click on the links for whomever made the card and take a good look. While you’re there… READ the post!! You’ll find all sorts of tips, tricks, and ideas to help you. So remember LOOK and then READ. You’ll be glad you did.

Today’s sketch, made from Kathryn’s card, doesn’t have the measurements for the matting. And there are Tips throughout this post.


The matting on the sketch is 1/8” all around. Yeah, to add these other measurements to the sketch would give you bug eyes… am I right? Tips on matting: I’m using the measurement of 4 x 2 as an example. For a more elegant 1/8” mat, add a ¼” to the length and width measurement. [Your mat would be 4.25 x 2.25] For a chunkier ¼” mat, add ½” to the length and width measurement. [Your mat would be 4.50 x 2.50]

Here’s the card by Kathryn that she made for our Memorial Day Bloghop.  There will also be a tip! Be sure to visit Kathryn on her blog, Kathryn’s Cards, and leave her some love. [Edit – Ooops I forgot the link. Kathryn’s Cards is here.]


Kathryn is so talented, and I love the way she can match patterns and colors together so beautifully. Tip: We talk about using sketches as a jumping off point for your own cards. If you read Kathryn’s blog you know she used Sketch #144, found here, as a starting point and then added her own layers and touches to it. Kathryn also has Sketch 144 on her blog post to show how she made it her own.

Well it’s time for me to skedaddle and go do something. Hope your last days of June are good ones!


  1. Kathryn,

    Such a pretty card! Kudos on being featured on today’s post!

  2. Great sketch — Kathryn did a wonderful job creating today’s sample card. Thanks for the mojo — I’ve been on vacation and out of the loop so this is a great way to get back to creating cards.

  3. Beautiful Kathryn – I love the card!
