Sketch Girls #4

Today I have a card to share that I made with using the Sketch Girls sketch. Now let me be the first to tell you this one was challenging...in fact, I made another one and couldn't get the sentiment placement right so gave it one more go at it and so glad I did.


This one "works" if you know what I mean. Oftentimes we just use a sketch as a general idea and I have no problem with going a bit off the sketch, but this time was challenging myself to STICK to it!   I used the stamp set Timeless Treasures designed by Theresa and some Basic Grey designer paper.  The card base is Soft Sand with Chocolate Kiss as a layering piece.  I love the sturdiness of the Gina K. Luxury cardstock...just can't be beat!  I stamped the lock twice and popped one up on a dimensional to add a little extra umph!

This month there is a contest for a 2 sketch Guest Designer spot with the Sketch Girls Design Team. The winner will be chosen from all of those that participate...the contest will start with this sketch and end in two weeks when the next sketch (SG5) goes up. The fun part....the Guest Designer will participate with us for SG6 and SG7 and get a special blog badge! There will even be a prize for the winner of this sketch...so get to creating with this sketch and show us what you've got! :o)

Be sure and check out the rest of the Sketch Girls creations for more inspiration (on my side bar) and hope to see your card linked up very soon!!!   And don't forget about the chance at my blog candy which you can find below this post :o) Have a great day!
