Caardvarks Sketch Challenge

The new challenge is up at Caardvarks.  YIPPEE.
And I had SO much fun playing with the products from the sponsor company.  ShortCuts make cardblanks of different types - and they are super easy to use.

This is a gift card holder I created using their ready made card.  It was originally ivory, so I inked it with distress ink and decorated.  Such FUN!

Supplies: Stamp - Hero Arts; Paper - Basic Grey; Ink - Tim Holtz Tattered Rose Distress Ink, Versafine; Butterfly punch and machine stitching.

This is the card I created using the sketch for the current challenge.  I love Brenda Walton products.  So pretty...  And the frosted acetate card blank is so easy to work with.

Supplies: Paper and sticker - K&Co; Stamp - Inkadinkado; Buttons - Hero Arts.

And finally for today, this simple card.  I stamped the clouds with Versamark, then heat embossed with blue powder.  I love the different effect that's created.  The birds are also heat embossed.

Supplies: Stamps - Hero Arts (clouds, birds, sentiment); Versafine ink; Embossing Powder - Heat it Up.

So the challenge is to create a card using the sketch below:
The 2 winners (yes 2!!) of this challenge will win a $15 gift certificate for ShortCuts.  And also, if you buy anything from their online shop (here) during the course of the challenge, you will get a 15% discount if you enter the code "Caard15" at the checkout.

I have the rest of my cards to share tomorrow - so until then, be sure to check the Caardvarks blog for more details.
