DCRU Sketch Challenge

Today is a special challenge at Die Cuts R Us- our first Sketch Challenge! Our first sketch was created by DT member Lori.

Here's the sketch:



And here is my take:



First of all I started by flipping the sketch. Then I used paper, buttons, and bling from the DCRU January Card Kit. I then used American Crafts Stamps - available at the DCRU Store to stamp my tree branch, birds, and sentiment. I used Papertrey Ink heart stamps in place of leaves on my tree. I went over my hearts with Stickles to add some shine. I also used my Martha Stewart Scalloped Punch, Cuttlebug & Spellbinder Nestabilities, and vintage lace from Etsy.

Visit the Die Cuts R Us DT Blog and check out the DT's beautiful creations this week!

Enjoy!!!

I love this! I love the paper, the dots, the layers, the birds. What an amazing card! I also was looking at your true friend layout and love it. I have a puppy who I just love and it is my first dog that is mine! I love her so much, and this picture just really hit home for me! I love it!
