Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Sketch Challenge at TPP


Hello there! I am back again today with the next great challenge over at The Paper Players. I enjoy Sketch week nearly as much as Color Week, because when designing your card the layout is done for you, and it makes things move along a bit faster… in my opinion that is. How do you feel about Sketch challenges? Do you like them? If I had more time on my hands I would start another card challenge site and the theme would be sketches. Hmmmm…maybe? πŸ˜‰ Just kidding….I think. LOL

Card Details: I had such a great job playing along with my new MFT Lily dies. Of course, I had to get out that great DSP from SU that I just adore and work it in my design. The sentiment is from Stampendous. I used a bit of greenery from Stampin Up too. It is from the Forever Fern die set. I made the victorian scalloped edging with my Fiskars cutter. I use to use it ALL the time and it was kinda my signature piece on my cards and I kinda got away from it. Of course, more Honey Bee Dew Drops.

I will also be linking my card up over at Addicted to Stamps and More for their Birthday Challenge.

I have quite a few cards coming in future posts using these Lilies. Stay tuned.

  1. This is beautiful Nancy!

  2. Your card is so very gorgeous! Great choice of papers and images.

  3. Nancy, this is so pretty! I love the lilies and that gorgeous DSP. I really like how the lilies pop off the white oval. The navy is so pretty with this DSP! You certainly made my sketch shine. And yes, I LOVE sketches. It makes creating so much easier!

  4. I am with you on sketches, and if you started a blog, I’d be one of the first to jump on board! This is beautiful…my granddaughter just used some of this paper on a project today! You both have good taste!

  5. Such a pretty card from this sketch! You added so many gorgeous details. The lilies are awesome! As to sketches… if it “speaks” to me, great, but if I can’t see my way into it, then it’s a struggle. Thanks for linking up with us at Addicted to Stamps and More!

  6. Such elegant colors together! Your spray of blooms is gorgeous!

  7. Nancy, this is such a pretty card. I love your color mix and your pink blooms pull the color from the DSP so beautifully. The scalloped edging adds a beautiful subtle texture to your design. Just love this. Enjoy your week.

  8. I’m in for another sketch challenge!! Sign me up! lol! I love how you placed the lillies to the side of the oval as well as the cool scalloped edge on the center band! All so pretty! Hope you’re having a great week!

  9. I love this Nancy – the flowers work perfectly at the edge rather than centred on your oval and a great way to use that pretty DSP too. My favourite is always a sketch challenge, so if you need a designer for that sketch challenge you’re thinking about, count me in!!!

  10. Beautiful, Nancy! I love how the flowers complement the paper perfectly! Heck yeah…sketch challenges are the BEST! I would be all over that like fuzz on a peach! Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. Such a beautiful card! The flowers are so perfect with the patterned paper.
