Here is my offering to the challenge, and I have to blow my own trumpet as I have fallen in love with this card, I am so chuffed with it, it is for my in-laws wedding anniversary tomorrow, and I don't want to give it away!!!! I hope you like it thanks for looking
Here is my Sketch Challenge card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=71811
and Thank You, Roxie for giving me the greatest layout for my valentines!! The sentiments says:*Nothing's better than a good friend with chocolate.* from Like It A Latte, and the glitter heart really adds *Bling*!!
Finished mine after fudging the sketch a little to get it all to fit. This was a great challenge, but I have about four other cards in pieces on my desk from all the things I tried to use on this card. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...54513&cat=4731
Thanks so much for the challenge.
I think I was having a bad card day today. I spent 2 hours making this card! It never takes me that long. I had to combine the color challenge with this sketch. And I think that was my problem. The colors seem quite dark to me, and I couldn't figure out what stamps to use with them. Oh well, I got the card done. Thanks Rox! http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...54543&cat=5806
I have to say, I LOVE THIS SKETCH! My only complaint is that I couldn't get started earlier so I'd have time to make a dozen! Anyway, I saw how everyone was using buttons on their cards, which reminded me of all the cute buttons I have in my stash...May have gone a little 'button crazy'! TFL, and great job, everyone!!!
I agree with several of the above thoughts - fun but difficult. I had a struggle finding the right size stamps to kind of go together, and to find something for the little narrow piece. I like the result, but should have cropped a bit more. I could not find any buttons, etc. small enough. I liked the color challenge colors, and had not had a chance to do that - thought those colors worked with my stamps. But as Burnham1997 said, it took time!
This was a really hard one for me. These sketches are so great to use as a jumping off point but I had trouble finding things to fit into the right sized rectangles. Sometimes we need a challenge, right!? Here's mine:
I just came from the gallery and I'm finding lots of cards with the wrong keywords; they should look like this:
SC108 without spaces between letters and numbers.
You aren't causing any extra work for anyone if they are wrong but your card will get over looked for those of us that do a gallery search using the challenge keywords when we are making comments. This is how I view when the gallery is running smoothly and I normally just check the thread for questions.
If you need to edit the directions are in the master thread linked in the opening post of this thread and in Beth's sticky thread at the top of the Card Sketches forum.
