Sketch Challenge 299
Sketch Challenge 299 (09-22-10)
Keywords: SC299 No spaces between letters and numbers, put a comma followed by a space between keywords. The keywords are all you need to have your card show up in the challenge gallery, having it in the keyword line covers more searches. Posting to this thread is not mandatory to play!
No due date for posting your card to any weekly challenge.
***************************** What is the Sketch Challenge: in Andrea’s words from SC08 (Andrea is the founder of the challenge): "You take the sketch I provided and use any stamp set, any accessory, and any kind of paper to make a card. So all of the cards have the same basic layout, but they all look very different." -It is fine to flip the sketch, change panel sizes, shapes, card size and border as you wish (unless stated in the write up for the week), a little tweaking is fine but let’s see those main elements of the posted layout please. (The colors are requested from players so it's easier to read the layout, it means nothing towards colors used or number of borders when creating your project.)
You can find measurements in my card description linked in post #2. Open the link and they will be at the top of the description. OR The attachment will print out to actual size of an A2 card for most computers. A2 is 4.25 x 5.5 inches. Printing directions are in the Master Thread linked above.
I wasn't sure I'd get to do the card today. This website must have done an upgrade because I had trouble connecting to the main page and the sketch page on two computers. After an upgrade I was able to get the sketch and play along!!! Color me happy!
This is a wonderful sketch, Karen! Thanks so much for filling in today.......we all appreciate it. Following the guidelines you mentioned, I did enlarge the "sentiment panel" into a square. I used it as my "image panel"........hope I didn't stretch things TOO much!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
