Stamp Something Sketch Challenge









I made this card for the sketch challenge going on at Stamp Something. Once I saw the sketch I knew immediately that I wanted to give it a try and here is my take on the sketch. Almost a year ago, I made a comment to a fellow blogger about the number of sketch challenges that she participated in. (very naive during that time) She replied (very nicely) by telling me that sketch challenges helped her to think "out-side of the box" and challenged her creativity! Know that I know better, I totally agree with her wise words of advice! Thank you very much for your words of advice and I understand what you mean now.
This ballerina kitty is another image that I downloaded from Pink Petticoat. If you like "cutsey stuff" this is one place you really need to check out! Tomorrow is Friday and I have an adorable RAK that I want to share with you all! Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.

Details:
stamped image and sentiment from Pink Petticoat, c/s Papertrey Ink, DP from S.E.I. (I love this paper!) and ,square Nestabilities templates, Adirondack Pitch Black Ink and Copic Markers, flowers SU, brads, LSS, ribbon Really Reasonable Ribbon,Dew Drop and extra fine glitter.

I love your cute kitty image and that dress is so cute, love the papers you used, great card. Have a wonderful weekend, and know what you mean about sketch challenges, I love them.

When I see some sketches or challenges, suddenly something that I have been thinking about comes out and I know I have to use it on that particular project. I seem to lean more towards challenges that ask you to use this or that more than sketches recently.

I love this kitty and the way you popped her dress. Awesome colors too.

Lovely card, love the pastel colors of the background.

Totally agree with you on sketch challenges - there are some that even though I don't know right at that moment what I would do with them, I know that I *want* to do something with them.
