taking on a challenge . . .

well, i did it.  i jumped in a tried a challenge at splitcoast stampers.  this card is for the sketch challenge (#330).

here is the sketch we had to work with this week.

the idea of a sketch challenge is to come up with a design following the sketch - using whatever colors, stamps or papers you desire. it really is quite fascinating to see what everyone comes up with - all following the sketch, all looking different. is what i came up with:

i love this stamp -- it's so fun!

the papers are stampin' up! - chocolate chip, crumb cake, and a light blue (can't remember the name). i also used designer paper from a stack i got at michael's.

the stamps are from hero arts (cookie day), and dsr designs (chocolate chips)

the ink is SU - chocolate chip, and the ribbon i picked up in the dollar bin at michael's.

no more lurking around the challenge forums for me!  this was lots of fun -- i'll have to play more often!

i hope you enjoy it!  thanks for stopping by!
