It's here! It's finally here! Our 200th Sketch Challenge at Freshly Made Sketches! Can you believe it? This has been weeks in the making. If there is one challenge that you want to take part in, this is it! Why you ask? Well, we have some amazing prizes to give away! I mean totally amazing! We have found some super generous sponsors who have donated some fabulous prizes! Lots of these sponsors have joined in our challenge and have created some gorgeous cards that will definitely inspire you!
0ur sketch this week is super versatile and there are so many different things you can do with it! Don't let it fool you though, it's not always as easy as it looks!!! Trust me (and the rest of the design team!!!).
I would love to say that the card you see above was the first card I made and that I whipped it up in seconds BUT after last week's post I'm pretty sure you know as well as I do that it isn't! This is in fact card #7!!! Yup, #7! Card 1 turned out not too bad. I actually don't mind it. Cards 2-5 did not even get finished and ended up in the garbage. Card #6 looks like this one only it's more vanilla and brown. I decided that one just wasn't doing it for me. Finally I (with help of our fabulous design team) decided on this one!!!! I'll get on to this creative process one of these days!
