The Challenge #33 - Guest Designing


Hello Friends and Happy Bank Holiday if you are in the UK
Hope you are having fun.
I'm happy dancing today as I was lucky to come in the Top 2
at The Challenge last week and it was my first time of entering 
... AND I was asked to guest design for this week's challenge!
So double celebrations!
It's a sketch challenge this week and to be honest it freaked
me out to begin with as I haven't done a layered sketch card in a while.
In fact I made 2 but the first one isn't blog worthy!
Here's my card followed by the sketch.

Card Recipe:
Altenew: Henna Elements heat-embossed in WOW sparkle EP
MFT Die-Namics: Stitched Square dies
Clearly Besotted: Say it in Style sentiment
and Stand Alone elegant butterfly die

Here's the sketch for you to follow and of course 
Enjoy and have some fun!



I'd also like to play along at Addicted to CAS
with my card as the theme is White, Black and Gold
Just hope it's 'CAS' enough for ATCAS!!!


and Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog


Quick Edit: Thanks Loll for suggesting this card would fit
at Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge - dies & punches




I hope you get chance to play along at 
and there's more fabulous inspiration from the design team
so have a little mooch HERE first before you head off to craft.

It's always a pleasure to know you've stopped by my blog
and thanks so much.
Sarah

  4. It is always a pleasure to admire your wonderful cards, dear Sarah. :-) I like your interpretation of the sketch and can hardly believe, you didn't make more cards with multiple layers. :-) Amazing colour combination.
    Have a nice Bank Holiday, Sonja
