So, I got up my nerve to participate in a sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers (#SC296) and had an absolute blast doing it. I can tell already that these can be addictive, as I'm already itching to do another
I'm so happy with it in fact, that I'm be offering this card as one of the 10 we'll be making at my Sept 25 Holiday 10 Card Class! I'm hoping my class peeps will like it as much as I do :)
The colour combination I chose was Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler -- all predicated off the Deck the Halls DSP I picked for the card.
A few other key elements were the bird from A Cardinal Christmas, the torn cardstock vellum layer around him and of course those fabulous new Antique Brads. I didn't know which of them to choose for the card... they all looked so good to me!
So tell me, what are your favorite sketch challenges to partipate in? I'd love to learn more!
