Our Creative Corner - Sketch Challenge & Giveaway

Hello & thanks for stopping by!! Today’s card is for this week’s challenge over at Our Creative Corner. This week our August host, Loretta Lock, has created a fun sketch challenge. We warmly invite you to play along, please use your favorite stamps and supplies.


As you can see from my design, I created a pocket card, I just decorated the front using an image I got from an image swap a while back. The designer paper is from Stampin' Up! called Hawaii Papaya (it's retired). This precious image was colored in using my Copics. To add a little extra detail to the flowers, I punched out some small flowers & glued them on. To finish off the design, I add some fun swirls, a felt flower (SU) and a button.

We LOVE it when you play along with us over at Our Creative Corner. There is no time limit on our challenge, so please play along whenever you are able!! If you upload to Splitcoast, please include OCCC in the keywords.Have a wonderful weekend & don't forget to stop by the OCC to see the other fun samples by the Design Team!Hugs & Smiles,

Need a NEW watermark? Post a comment telling me what your favorite music group from the 80's was. I will announce the winner on Tuesday, September 2nd.

This is adorable and I really love that fun paper. Too bad it's retired:( Oh, my favorite music groups from the 80's. I can't pick one, it would be Duran Duran and Erasure!

Those little added flowers make it over the top cute! Oh gosh -- the eighties -- My DH is still stuck in them musically... I still hear it all way too much. His ipod is time warp scary.

Jennifer, I loved this sketch! Thank-you for your help - I really couldn't have done it without you! I don't know what is wrong with me because I really didn't see this as a pocket card until I saw some of the DT cards - a truly D'Oh moment!!! LOL!

Your little girl here is so darling!

Styx!

Hi Jennifer,

Then again there was also The Bangles, Duran Duran, Howard Jones, Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, Gloria Estefan, Madonna.

Oh my word the list is endless, LOL.

Have a great day!

I'm not an "80's" child, but I did like Come Sail Away by Styx. I guess that's my favorite group of the 80's!

Favorite group from the eighties is a tough call for me. I had many, but I think Phil Collins is one of my all time fave's.
Your card is one of my favorites also! They're always special.
