Sketch Challenge at Papercraft Planet

The Papercraft Planet has certainly grown in leaps & bounds since it's beginning and have so many wonderful groups and challenges available. If you haven't been there ... you really should check it out!! Unfortunately I have been somewhat negligent of the challenges which I SO LOVE to play until today ...

Here is my card for the sketch challenge (sk013109). In my haste, I didn't really catch on to the fact that this was a "double" challenge offer.

The wording went like this:
Using this week's sketch challenge you can be eligible to win Melanie Muenchinger's beautiful stamp set Hand in Hand. All you have to do to enter is use the below sketch with the theme from the movie pick from the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge blog, where this week we are featuring the movie: The Princess Bride.

Of course, you could just play it as the "sketch" challenge!! Whew ... !! Here are a few details about the card. The butterfly image is by Northwood and the sentiments are by Serendipity. I colored in the image using SU watercolor pencils and blender pen then proceeded to cutting their shape using my Nestabilities circle and scallop circle diecuts.

My sentiment circle was created by stamping and embossing the words ... cutting the shape with a smaller Nestabilities circle THEN ... before removing it from the die, I sponged around it with pink pirouette ink. When removed from the die, it left a nice white border which I then matted using pink pirouette cardstock and the next size up Nestie. A little trick I learned from my your friend and mine ... Sharon Johnson.

The base card is A-6 size premade purchased at Michaels ... background paper is by Paper Pizazz ... Offray ribbon ... Prima flowers and metal butterfly charm by Embellish-It.

Hope you enjoyed my card ... there are other challenges awaiting my creativity so I'd best get busy!!! LOL!! Have a wonderful day my friends!


  1. Soooo pretty and springy...which we can all use right now. So many elements to "look around" and find, but still elegant and simple looking. Love it Ma!

  2. This is so pretty! Looks like a stained glass window. I love it!
