"PERFECT MIX" FOR SKETCH CHALLENGE #69

This month's Creating Pretty Cards - Card Challenge #69 at Craft Project Central is one like you have probably never done.  Well . . . that was the case for me.  I actually had to give it a bit of thought, but I thoroughly enjoyed it once I had an idea.  This is the card that I designed:


My card features images from Stampin' Up!'s Perfect Mix stamp set, which I colored with Pool Party, Real Red, and Smoky Slate markers.  Once the images were colored, I used Paper Snips to cut them out and then began the task of positioning them "just right".  It's hard to tell from the photo, but that's a strip of Silver Foil paper on the front left of the designer paper.  

Buffy Cooper designed the sketch, which looks like this:


And this is the card sample that Buffy created for the challenge:

A full tutorial (complete with step-by-step photos) is available HERE
Did you know that for every 10 cards that are created and uploaded HERE for Sketch Challenge #69, a winner will be drawn to receive a FREE one-month subscription to Craft Project Central?  It's really that easy, so I would encourage YOU to create and upload a card for the challenge!

Hi Regina! I love your card! the Perfect Mix was a perfect choice for this sketch. And after making my card, I see that we both used the taupe check for our center layer! It's the perfect neutral to work around, isn't it?

I LOVE this card, Regina! It's such a great "take" on the sketch - and the colors are perfect for a retro kitchen. Nice!
