Sketch Challenge #171

Hi there! This is Louise with my fourth and final challenge for April. I have really loved seeing all the cards you have made with my choices of colours and sketches this month, you really are a most talented bunch! We will be posting the top picks from last week's colour challenge on Monday, don't forget to check back if you entered the challenge.

Of course I have a sketch for you this morning. I hope I have not simplified my idea too much....


Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when creating your card, but it is kind of important to get a curve in there.

Here is some inspiration from the design team to get your creative juices flowing:

Colour Challenge #170

Hello fellow crafters. It's Louise again, back with my second colour challenge. Last time it was spring flowers, this time I have thought of blossom as my inspiration. I live in the heart of the U.K., where there are many orchards and I love those days when the sky is clear blue and you drive past or walk through these orchards when the blossom out. I have a secret wish to visit Japan some day and see the cherry blossom there too.


We've used Stampin' Up colour names for reference; however, you may use any companies' products for your cards as long as you match our colours as closely as possible. You may also use white, ivory, kraft, or black for your card base and layers, for image outlines, or for sentiments. However, in order to be considered for our weekly winners, you must not use any other colours.

Thank you for your beautiful cards in the gallery last week, featuring the sketch we used. We will be posting our favourites after the weekend.
