November Sketch Challenge!

Hi Everyone! 

Happy November! Can't believe it is November already. This year has flown by. The weather here in sunny AZ is finally cooling down, the garden is exploding and we have a new sketch challenge to share with you all! It is easy to play along. Simply make a card using at least one PPRS stamp or die product, post to your blog, and link to our blog through Mr. Linkey! You are more than welcome to combine this sketch challenge with other challenge blogs as long as you use one PPRS product.

This month, one lucky winner will receive the Fall Circle Clear Stamp Set and the Scallop Circle Die . All featured on this card. Valued at over $25.00
All entries must be posted to your blogs and linked to Mr. Linkey on our blog by November 14th. One lucky winner will be chosen and announced by November 17. The winning card will be featured on our blog as well as our Facebook page! 

Now for the sketch!

This card was so simple to do, since we had a sketch to follow.
I cut out one scallop circle die shape. Stamped the Thanksgiving/ Gratitude stamp into the die shape using VersaMark black ink. Next I stamped the cornucopia into the center and colored with colored pencils.
Next I cut three panels from blue design paper. Mounted onto brown cards stock then onto my tan card base. I cut one mesh border (Cheery Lynn Designs) from brown design paper. I layered the mesh onto the blue panels, then layered my stamped image onto a cream scalloped circle and adhered to the card with pop dots.

Thanks for playing along, we are excited to see your entries!

Here is some additional inspiration to get you started.

  1. Cute cards by the design team! I'd love to join the fun, but alas, I am in Oregon and my stamps are in AZ. Maybe next time.

  2. Question...if you don't have a blog, can you still enter the sketch challenge?

    1. You just have to have a way to link up - a card gallery would work, too, if you just add the link to it above. :)

    2. Thanks Jenn! ...Pinterest would work...or Splitcoast Stampers! We hope you can play Lisa!

  3. I subbed a branch for the horizontal strip behind the circle. Loved your sketch this month!

  4. it was so much fun to attend the Wisconsin Rubber STamping Associations vendor event this weekend. LOVED meeting Mary who designs the coolest images ever! What a wonderful person she is. Helpful as all get out. I enjoyed the event a lot.
