After making the card for Tuesday’s Be Inspired Challenge, I thought that layout was sweet enough to be a sketch challenge. So here it is as this weekend’s sketch challenge:


I had complaints about my sketches being too dark.

I am not sure if this is better. I hope you can all see it. This is how light the next 12 sketches or so will be. Let me know if you like that better. I personally like my dark ones better.

To participate in the challenge and be entered in the  raffle, make a card with this layout and upload it either to your blog, or to an online gallery.

 If you upload your card on SCS, put WSC47  (NO SPACE INBETWEEN WSC AND 47) in the keyword section. That way we can look at all of them at once!

Post a link to your card to this blog entry as a comment. Please add your entry# to it.

I will determine the winner  with on Monday at 11:00 a.m. CST

Have fun creating! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

SCS submissions

I deleted comments that don’t have a sketch entry. I am sorry about that, but otherwise it will totally throw the numbering off! I do appreciate your input about the color of the sketches though. Although it seems I won’t be able to please everyone. It’s a split between dark and light sketch lovers.

    It’s kinda punny! LOL
    Thank you and Happy Mother’s Day to everyone!

  59. Here’s the link to my blog showcasing your sketch challenge. I used Summer by the Sea with a strip of vellum to make the division in the main panel. I just LOVE how it turned out. Thanks so much, Beate. This was really fun!!

  60. Ok Beate I have to say I like the dark ones better. Since I am diabetic having to look at light items is very hard


  61. I don’t really like working with ovals too much, so I kept it simple and used the oval for my sentiment. Guess I should challenge myself to work with a larger oval and make it my focal. Here is what I did,

  62. Hi Beate, I know I’m too late, and I DON’T expect you to stop by and comment 🙂 but here’s mine anyway…
