"I'm starting up Inspirational Card Sketches in order to share my inspiration with you.
First and farmost there will be no compensation at this time.I'm looking for 6 designers who love creating cards.
Your term will be 4 months. Term is from Feb-May 2009
If you would love or like to be on a Card Sketch Design Team this call is for you.
Every Tuesday I will send you a card sketch one week in advance for you to work on. You however as a DT member will have to get your creations to me no later then Monday at 12:00pm (noon) Central Standard Time.
You will also get to embellish your cards however you want. My sketches are for your inspiration only. And to help others get ideas on how to use these sketches.
To start this call off I want you to make a card using this sketch below. Then I want you to
post it on your blog along with this call and leave me a direct link to your blog post in the comment section here

So, without further ado, here are my offerings for this challenge:

This is such a lovely, simple sketch that I wanted to keep my cards as simple and uncluttered as possible. However, I did also do this card which is a bit more fussy but it was in line with my latest 'thing' about trying to stamp direct to card and not use decorative backing papers. I loved how it came out IRL but no matter how many photo's I took of it, none of them really do it many favours, I feel, but I'll show it off anyway!! LOL! Most of my sketch offerings have previously been shown on my other blog but who knows, I could be showing off many more on here during 2009?

Thanks for popping in, and good luck to all the other 'sketchers' who have submitted their own take on the sketch! ;o) x


  1. Yaay! You did it!
    And wow they are stunning Anne - that first one is just amazing to look at - I've been trying to simplify my cards - sometimes I think cards are more striking the simpler they are...
    Oooh I just love them your last one with those great stamps is gorgeous..


  2. Hey Anne, all your cards are absolutely stunning. I think the photos look great this end. I think the last one is my fav. It is the take of amba bling that did it for me. I thought for a mo you changed the sketch, but in fact you were very arty. (You are sure to get in the DT so look out).

  3. Wowser Anne your cards are all beautiful. I to love simple. Gorgeous job well done and thanks for the submission and good luck with the call. :)
