Whew! It seems everyone has a sketch challenge going on this week.  Here’s a couple of posts with those sketches and what I did with them. 

This one was from SSIC and they were very specific that the sketch had to be followed with NO CHANGES.  You could change the circle to a square or change the shapes of anything but every element had to be included.  Now this was hard for me as I am basically a contemporary simplistic stamper.  So I think the card looks way to busy but I know someone will think it’s beautiful when they receive it in the mail. It’s kind of vintage contemporary~~Now there’s a new class of design for ya!  Open-mouthed smile

This difficult to follow sketch took me a full sixty-two minutes to make.  That’s a long time for me.  I set the timer from the time I picked up the sketch and walked to the drawer to see which paper I would use. I like to be able to put a card together from thought to end in about thirty minutes so you can see I WAS challenged.  Here’s the result. SSICsketch

Yes, I got in all the elements.

  1. This is gorgeous girl. It always takes me hours to do a card. I come up with an idea and then I change my mind and do something different. ;)

  2. P.S. Thank you for joining us at Stampin Sisters in Christ. :)

  3. Don't even get me started on how long it took me to get my card done with this sketch. It was fun to do though, and my friend at church that I gave it to loved it. I love the paper that you used. Those flowers are gorgeous!!!

  4. I had to smile when I saw Becky's P.S. then I got so caught up trying to get blogger to let me comment I forgot to say "Thank you for joining us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ." too. :)

  5. Oh wow! I love what you came up with in those 62 minutes! I hate to tell you how long I spend on one card.... but lets just say I'd be thrilled to be done in 62 minutes!!! Love the pretty bright colors especially the flowers on this! Beautiful job and I hope you feel it was worth the effort! Thanks for playing along with us again at Stampin Sisters in Christ!
