Our second challenge this month over on the CKCB is a sketch challenge. We worked with this adorable sketch from Roree Rumph for October Afternoon:
I decided to make a card, and I stayed pretty true to the sketch. The three panels across the front reminded me of tags, so I chose three printed tags from the Maggie Holmes journaling card paper in my kit. To mix things up a little, I punched my heart accent out of the tag panel rather than attach a separate heart embellie. I then popped the tag panel up with pop dots and tied some Lawn Fawn yarn around the whole panel.
I omitted two of the three "strips" on the bottom of the sketch, and instead used a strip of "hello" patterned paper as my sentiment. I made the chevron accents by trimming a 1/2" strip of paper (another journaling card from Maggie Holmes) and used just the pointy part of my heart punch. Super easy! I also use this technique for trimming the ends of banners. You could also use a triangle or square punch.
Thanks for popping by today! We'd love to see your take on this sketch, either as a card or a layout! Don't forget to link your project to the August Mr. Linky on the CKCB. :)
