Sketch Challenge project

There's so much going on at the moment that keeping up with things is making my life very interesting. One of the things I'm conscious of is that I've not taken part in a challenge recently, so yesterday I had a quick peek around the sites (not sure that there really is such a thing as a quick peek when it comes to paper crafting) and I found a challenge on the Freshly Make Sketches site that I quite fancied.

This is their Freshly Made Sketches Challenge # 183.

I have however put my slant on it by making a landscape card rather than a portrait one. The reason being was that I wanted to use the Hello You Thinlits Dies and the words are a little too big to fit portrait. I used Beach House Washi Tape, which is one of the items on the Retirement List, to make the stripes.

Here's my take on the sketch.

The " YOU" comes from the Crazy About You stamp set. This is a great set because you can make up our own greeting like above. Just so you know, the die from the Hello You Thinlits  should actually say "thanks" but I cut off the S. It's only card stock after all.

I also made another card along similar lines using the same Washi Tape and Thinlits but it does not quite follow the sketch so I've not entered it into the challenge. Either way, both cards were simple and quick to make and I just love the Real Red and Crushed Curry combination.

As always, please feel free to leave comments.
