A Sketch Challenge

Hi there,

I'm back again with another challenge, but this time it's a sketch challenge. I found this sketch challenge over at the fantastically talented Sarah Berry's blog, Stamp with Sarah. She has just started introducing sketch challenges over at her blog and this is the second one ever. So if you pop over to Strawberry Sketches #SS002 you too can take part in the challenge. Click HERE to go to the challenge. Whilst your're  visiting  have a go yourself. I've only just started taking part in challenges and they have certainly got me stretching my creative a little less "case-ing" for me I think!

OK you are here to see my card. What do you think? I love it.

Card details are as follows.
1. Thick extra white CS base with a smaller whisper white panel popped up with dimensionals.
2. A circle cut out just off centre on the front panel, then  ran  through the Softly Falling embossing folder.
3. Flowers and leaves cut out using the Botanical Builder framelits. Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black CS used.
4. Sentiment from Floral Phrases stamped in the aperture of the circle with Pumpkin Pie ink.
And that  my friends, is my card.

One last photo for viewing pleasure.

I am hoping my card is a good interpretation of the sketch.

Have a lovely weekend and keep warm if you are in Melbourne!

Cheers Donna :)


  1. Hi Donna!! You're amazing, love your card I need to get my botanicals out! I love that you took part in the sketch this week. Hope to see you taking part next time, next one out of Wednesday. :) xx

  2. Thanks Sarah, I'm glad you like my card! My botanicals have been getting quite a work out lately lol. I have been stalking your blog for quite a while and love all your work. I hope to take part in next week's challenge as well!!! Cheers Donna :)

    1. Haha! Thanks Donna! What a compliment! Hope to see you back, the next sketch is out today. Xx

  3. Beautiful card Donna! I love the pop of colour of the flowers against the white background. Lovely!

  4. Thanks Tracey. Have a great week. Cheers Donna :)

  5. Hi Donna, I like this card. Even though the flowers are very colorful (which is good) but since the rest of the card is white (quiet, simple), it`s not overloaded and looks very elegant and appealing to me! Well done!!
