Gina K's sketch challenge

Boy oh boy are there lots of really fun challenges floating around this week! Not only with National Cardmaking Day, but 3, yes 3 companies had releases this week and they all have their challenges too (Gina K, Hanna Stamps, MFT). Oh to have 10 more hours EACH day just to make cards... a girl can dream right?!?

I had a chance to get to one of Gina K's challenges today. It is a sketch challenge issued by Joanne, you can find the deets here. I used my Make a Wish set (which is one of her Stamps for a Cause releases) and made a soft sympathy card. I never seem to have enough of these on hand when I need them. I love the sentiment in this set.

The pink cardstock is from Prismapapers Crabapple Light it was a perfect match for the Basic Grey Sugard paper I chose. The ribbon is the striped organdy from Heidi's store. I used my new SU scallop border punch. There are stickles on the flower puffs to bring out the sparkle in the ribbon. Super soft and pretty IRL.

Card Deets:
Stamps - Make A Wish
Paper - Crabapple Light, very vanilla, Suggard
Ink - pretty in pink, Adirondack Slate
Accessories - Circle nesties, ribbon, paper piercer, stickles


  1. This is a very lovely card. The color is so pretty and I like the simplicity of the layout.

  2. This card is just breathtaking with the lovely soft pink and white with just a touch of brown.
