Paper Therapy Challenge #1 - Sketch

Monday, October 4, 2010

Hello and Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend and were able to spend some time making cards for World Card Making Day.
Today is an exciting day. It's the first day of the weekly challenges over at Paper Therapy, and I'm proud to be a member of the design team. Yeah! This week happens to be a sketch challenge, and it's such a nice sketch, don't you think?! Kristin did a great job with it. We would LOVE to see what you can come up with for this challenge! There happens to be a prize for this one (the winner of the 1st challenge of every month gets a prize)! You have until this Saturday, Oct 9th at 11:59 pm (CST) to post a picture of your finished project as a reply to this week's challenge post.'s the sketch...

...and here's what I came up with!
I needed a card for my good friend Sara's baby shower. They don't know the baby's gender, therefore I had to make it neutral, so I used both blue and pink. I think it turned out so cute, what about you?
I would love to hear your feedback and comments, so feel free to do so!
Thanks for stopping by! :-)
