Creative Card Crew #55 - Sketch

Good morning, and welcome to another Creative Card Crew Challenge. Many thanks to everyone who joined in last time's die cuts challenge - there were some amazing entries. Don't forget to visit the main challenge blog to see if you have won the prize. Sorry I didn't get round to comment on everyone's that I should as life has been very hectic - will try harder this fortnight lol!

On then this to this fortnight's challenge which has been set by Sandie - and it's this fabulous sketch. Hope you will all have as much fun working with it as I did.

This time we are sponsored by another regular sponsor -

For details of this week's prize and all the rest of the fab DT sample cards, please do visit the main challenge blog.

Now then, I'm really not quite sure where the past fortnight has gone to ... work has been very hectic with long hours, and somehow the time has flown by with hardly a craft session in sight. Here's my best attempt at the sketch though .. hope you like it.

Main image: Sugar Nellie "Pickin' Apples", coloured with Promarkers;
Sentiment: Penny Black "Teddy and Company" transparent set;
Papers: Papermania "Rose Garden" and a teeny bit of MME "Quite Contrary" for the small green strips;
Supplies: flowers by Wild orchid Crafts; pearls from The Hobby House;
Tools: Fiskars cutter "Victorian" blade; Leone Em "Ash Family" leaf punch.

I deliberately chose my image so that I could enter this week's Simon Says challenge - Let's Get Fruity; and I would also like to enter it for the following:

By the Cute & Girly (July) - Warm Summer Days
Bunny Zoe's Challenge #2 - Summer Days
Allsorts #61 - Summer Days
Wild Orchid Crafts #1 - Say It with Flowers
Crafty Cardmakers #25 - Photo inspiration - I took the shades of aqua and green

Stampavie & More #102 - Anything Goes
The Town Scrapper - Anything Goes
(Town Scrappers have gone to town this week as they are taking a holiday until Labour Day)
Have a great week, and look forward to seeing your creations :-)
