Sketch and Stash Challenge #1

Hi Everyone!
Can I firstly take this opportunity to thank everyone for their fantastic response to our new challenge blog, the Sketch and Stash challenge! We can't wait to see all your cards which you create for the first challenge!

There is a fantastic prize this week and the winner of the Willow with umbrella stamp is revealed, so please pop on over to the blog to see for yourself.

Here is the sketch that we are asking you to follow this fortnight, you can rotate it, re size the elements and add extra bits and bobs if you need to!

And with the sketch we would like you to use either your newest stash or something which you've had for ages and never used!!

And here is the card that I made for the first challenge...




My newest item on my card is my Denny Dragon stamp which I had for Christmas, he is from Pink Gem Designs. I've coloured him with water colours and pencils. I've rotated the sketch for my card and added some cute gingham ribbon and some Papermania embellishments (which are free with the latest copy of Do Crafts Creativity magazine) so another new item used there!!


Please have a look at Chrissie and Lisa's gorgeous creations on the challenge blog and we really hope you will join us for the fun!!


Thanks for looking as always and your comments are always very much appreciated!


Love Becky xx
