Sketch Girl 11

Time for a new challenge at Sketch Girl. This month our sponsor is Perfect Presentation! The winner of the challenge will receive a Perfect Presentation template of your choice.

Are you ready to see the sketch? Here it is:

And here is my card:

I flipped the sketch & instead of using circles in the corners I used triangles. I used Papertrey Ink Cardstock & Patterned Paper, Ink, and Stamp. I used Basic Grey Patterned Paper and Chipboard, Prima Bling, and my Cuttlebug plus a Quickutz Embossing folder. I inked over the embossed paper with Martha Stewart ink to make the polka dots stand out.

Visit all of the Sketch Girl Design Team Blogs for lots of inspiration:


Our Guest Designer for January is Laurel Seabrook.

Hope everyone is staying warm. The snow is flying outside my window! We've already got at least 4 inches with MUCH MORE to come. So if you are snowed in (like me) you'll have plenty of time to craft! Be sure to leave the link to your card in comments on the Sketch Girl Blog!

Another great take on the sketch. There is wonderful dimension on your card and I like the triangles vs "circles". I really need to get that PTI set :>) said...

Oh, and no snow, but it is 5 degrees out this morning...brrrr!

Wow, it's so pretty! Very cool card, Amber. I love all the different shapes you went with and the branch thingy with the ball thingys (I'm still nursing my coffee and not fully functional yet) is a gorgeous addition.

I'm snowed in too and love it!

Amber, I love your card! It's so unique and I love the way you treated the DP with embossing AND ink!! When I first saw it I was thinking "That doesn't really look like the sketch" But when I read that the triangles were the cirlces is though, "AHA! How clever!" Really, a beautiful card!!

This is gorgeous Amber, I love the little berries! We got about 4 1/2inches of snow with the temp. getting down to 13 last night so it is icy and cold! Hugs, Annette

You make me laugh Amber! 4 inches snows you in? I was grumbling 2 weeks ago when my husband and I left for work and there was 10 inches on the ground!

Absolutely LOVE your card. Totally the type of card I could never manage and make it come out looking good. The beads and the branch are awesome!
