Whale of a Time Birthday Card Sketch Challenge

 Hi Everyone,

Those of you who follow me will know that I regularly show you projects that are challenges.  Sometimes it's colours, sometimes a particular product and sometimes it's a sketch.  I do lots of challenges with two of my crafty friends - Taffycrafting (Donna Lester) and Vickieloudesigns (Victoria Littlewood) and we have a regular weekly one called Share it on a Sunday. Well, now Donna has challenged us to do some sketch challenges over the next few weeks to keep our creative mojo going and I'm going to use them as a chance to show you new products as well as some old favourites that I haven't used for a while.  So, here goes with my Challenge 22 of #33, I hope that you like it.

(sketch from cardztv.blogspot.com)


1 piece of pretty peacock card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4" and a strip 1/2" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of pool party card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
1 piece of whisper white card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and a scrap for the sentiment
Pretty peacock ink
Granny apple green ink
Posted for You stamp set
Tasteful Touches stamp set
Beauty Abounds stamp set
1 piece of dsp 2" square and 2 pieces 1" square (Whale of a Time)
Classic label punch
Multipurpose adhesive


Score the pretty peacock card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

On the pool party card stock, stamp the leaf images from Tasteful Touches  in pretty peacock and granny apple green along the bottom and then add some of the small bubbles (stamped off several times) to the top of the card to look like bubbles in the water.

Stamp the leaf images on the whisper white layer and then adhere to the inside of the card.

Adhere the pool party layer to the card front and add the pretty peacock strip along the bottom as shown.

Stamp a sentiment on the scrap of whisper white and punch out with the classic label punch and adhere to the right hand end of the strip.

Arrange the two 1" squares diagonally at the right and left of the card front and then lay the 2" square diagonally over the top as shown on dimensionals.

Why don't you give the sketch a try, you can use whatever you want and it will be a unique card.
