Another Sneak Peak through a Sketch Challenge

I love sketch challenges. Only because I love doing lots of different layouts and I like trying new ones out with my cards. That's probably one of my favorite parts of paper crafting. I've been following the Pals Paper Arts for a few months now. I always want to participate in their challenges but usually by the time my kids allow me to complete the challenge it's already the next week. :p This week, by some miracle (and simultaneous naps!) I was able to complete the challenge!

The Pals Paper Arts challenges aren't always sketch challenges. Sometimes they are colour challenges, other times they are inspiration from a photo challenges. But as it happens, this week's challenge *was* a sketch challenge (see sketch on the left). Since we're nearing the new cattie debut I thought I'd throw in another Sneak Peak! I used the gorgeous new Greenhouse Gala Designer Paper and the Artistic Etchings stamp set. I also got my Marina Mist 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon today and just *had* to break it out for this card. I thought the #4 element was a perfect spot for the ribbon. You'll notice I rotated the sketch to suit my Eiffel Tower image.

I am LOVING the Marina Mist colour as well as Daffodil Delight - what a gorgeous colour. To all those mourning the loss of Summer Sun, I promise, you'll get over it when you see this yummy new yellow!

Hope this sketch gets your creative juices flowing and this card gets you even more excited about the new cattie (as though that's even possible!). Remember to keep letting stamps bring out your creativity!
