Sketch Challenge Cards

I posted a sketch challenge yesterday for a mini accordian card which measures 4x4. The scoring measurements and layout are both in that post. I made this one today.... It's composed of scraps from Scenic Route paper and a pink sheet of 4x12 DCWV textured cardstock. I dug out an old SU set for the flower - the sentiment is from American Art Stamp.

The card opens by undoing the ribbon and reveals 2 panels for your personal sentiments as well as 2 panels of patterned paper. I love how the sentiment follows the fold to cover the 2 inside panels.

The owl card was made with DCWV textured cardstock which was sanded down to show the white core. I buy these pads all the time when Joanne's has them at 50% off. I love the white core!! The owl is from Inkadinkado and was stamped on kraft cardstock and colored with copics.

I left the inside of this card plain so you could actually use all 4 panels for writing. I added a few little owls as decoration.

Now I'd love to see what you come up with for these cards!! If you post on your blog or on SCS please use code TCCSK01 so I can find it!! It would also be great if you could post a link back to this site. If there is interest I'll post sketches a couple of times a month... so please let me know what you think!

By the way I'm still waiting to hear from my blog candy winner.... if you know her tell her to email me!!

This is a great sketch, different and creative. I really enjoy your work and style and hope you will continue with the sketches. I doubt that I will have time to stamp until after Christmas, but will give the sketch a try then.
