The Challenge #76 {A Sketch}

Hello and Welcome to Week One at The Challenge! We are back after a long, summer break! We are excited about this new year and we hope you are too! Before we get going, we have to say farewell to two designers...Jinny Newlin and Diane Jaquay! Best wishes to you ladies and thank you for being on our team!

We've decided to run the challenge on Saturdays this year! We hope you will join us!

Here is how it will work....
Saturdays 5am (PST)-Challenge Goes Live
Fridays 12pm (PST) Challenge Closes
Saturdays 4am (PST)-Winners Announced 





Each week we have a fun challenge for your to try!!! We do a different style of challenge each week! We like to mix things up and keep them fresh!


Here is the monthly rotation:
Week 1-Sketch
Week 2-Colours
Week 3-Photo Inspiration
Week 4-Christmas Photo Inspiration
Week 5-Wild Card (a surprise!)
For my card, I decided to use mix my other challenge...Inspired by All the Little Things with this sketch! Over at Inspired by, we have a bright and bold inspiration photo chosen by me! I couldn't resist mixing both challenges and I hope you are inspired to join us at both spots! I did some "unsual" watercolouring and I did NOT fill in the entire floral image! GASP! I tried to challenge myself to be free with my ink and let the inspiration guide me...it is not exactly what I had envisioned but I think the sentiment works well with this eclectic coloured card! The flowers and sentiment are from Verve called Surely Goodness. Then I added a vellum butterfly to tie it all together.


The design team have created some inspiration to get you in the crafting mood! Come and join us! Our weekly winner will be our next Guest Designer! So come and join the fun!
