Inspire Create Challenge #011 - It's Sketch Time!

Many apologies for having been 'Missing In Action' for a while. I am hoping I am back on track and crafty goodness will flow again now.

Just my luck to get food poisoning and flu one week after the other, and just as I had got myself reasonably ahead with my blog and YouTube. But enough of that, you want to know about the new Inspire Create Challenge.

Petal Passion and Stampin Blends for Inspire Create Challenge 011

Petal Passion and Stampin Blends for Inspire Create Challenge 011

This week we have a sketch to inspire you and to get the crafty mojo flowing. To be honest, I had forgotten that I was due to submit a design this week, my brain has really gone into slow mode, so I was a little concerned that I would struggle to get something put together, but do you know, it took less than an hour to come up with the idea, make the project and take the photos; don't you love it when that happens!

I know I shouldn't say it, but I am absolutely thrilled with the idea too. Using the Black and White Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and colouring in a strip across the middle with Stampin' Blends just works. Then add the die cut, and it all came together. I used the middle of the Silver Foil Matt for my die-cutting, so there was nothing wasted. It is an age since I used Rich Razzleberry, and I can tell you, it is starting a bit of a trend for me, so watch our for more of that very soon.

Please hop over to the Challenge Page, just click on the sketch above, and take a look at what the other Design Team Members have made of this sketch, they are an extremely talented group, so they will give you masses of inspiration. Then just link your project to the page and you never know, you may win!!
