Peony Garden Sketch Challenge Card

 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 31 of #33, I hope that you like it.


1 piece of petal pink card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of whisper white 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" and 1 piece 2 3/8" x 3 1/4" and a scrap for the sentiment
1 piece of dsp 3 7/8" x 5 5/8", 1 piece 3 5/8" x 1 3/4", 1 piece 3 5/8" x 3 1/4" and 1 piece 2 5/8" x 3 1/2" (I have used 3 different designs from Peony Garden)
Prized Peony stamp set
Grey granite ink
Posted for you stamp set
Multipurpose adhesive
Classic Label punch
Simply Scored
Bone folder


On the long side score the petal pink card stock at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Adhere the largest piece of dsp to the card front leaving a border all around.

Adhere the next two pieces leaving borders between and around them as shown in the picture.

Stamp the large peony on the whisper white mat layer for the front and adhere to the remaining dsp layer.  Add this to the card front using dimensionals.

On the whisper white layer for the inside I have stamped a sentiment and two of the small peonies.  Stamp the sentiment on the scrap and punch out with the classic label punch.

Another simple sketch challenge that will look completely different depending on the stamp sets and dsp that you use, give it a try, its fun.
