Sketch Challenge #71

Sketch Challenge #71

Wow, how ’bout that bloghop! I don’t know about you, but I’m still hopping my way through all those awesome blogs! (Scroll down one post to get to the start of the hop!)

I bet we all have tons of ideas for cards now, which will be helpful for our Start the Second Million Challenge! Check it out:

While you’re working on your second million, see if you find this sketch useful:

We have four, yes FOUR! samples today courtesy of the awesome Carolynn! Aren’t they cute? Carolynn doesn’t have a blog so please take a moment to leave her some love here on this post. I really appreciate your help this week, Carolynn!

That should give y’all some great ideas! Be sure and link back to show us what you made, I love to visit!

To play along in this week’s sketch challenge, simply upload a project using this week’s sketch to your blog or online gallery then leave a direct link to your project using the Inlinkz widget at the bottom of this post. And remember, you may use this sketch at any time. Feel free to re-post the sketch on your blog along with your card… then come back and leave a link for us so we may all see your cards!

We encourage everyone to take a few moments to visit and leave comments for the other participants. Comments are a wonderful way to say thank you for sharing your creative project and inspires everyone to create.

  2. Hi Carolynn, Thank you for the samples. The variety of ways you have interpreted the sketch is very helpful. I especially like the plaid/seersucker bands. I am wondering if they are paper or fabric.
