I Spy Sketch Challenge Debut!!

The day has come... it's finally here!! The first sketch (ISSC01). The basis of the challenge is to "spy" a card in any online gallery or blog-- the sketch is created from the card chosen. The sketch will be posted Friday at 12:01 am (for time zones and early birds) and you have until noon the following Wednesday to create a card or project based on the sketch. THE Kim Teasdale will be picking the top 2 creations to be displayed on the "Top 2 Thursday" post. Check it out HERE.

The first sketch is based on this fabulous card by Loretta Lock. Yes, that girl can color!!

Here's my card, sans the coloring....


Ha... you don't want to know how many times I "piddled" with this card... those three bows on the bottom "threw" me a little, LOL!! Gorgeous Verve flowers were stamped in SU Mellow Moss and Early Espresso, the leaves were stamped in early espresso and cut out with Verve's A Cut Above Die-- Leafy Sprigs. The ends of the flowers were curled with my poker (as I like to call it)- piercer. The border is an MFT die--faux crochet border.

Here's the sketch


Hope you can join us.... the DT have made some fabulous cards.

Just... think today is TGIF and I sooooo badly need it... it's been a rough week (work and personal)!!
