Guest Designing at 'The Challenge'

Happy Monday to All,

A few weeks ago I was thrilled to be asked by Lesley to be the Featried Guest Designer at The Challenge. I was amazed to be asked and naturally said a very loud 'YES'. 

Today it is a sketch challenge and here is the sketch:



This sketch did scare me a bit as it didn't seem to suit my CAS style however once I decided to use the Uniko sentiment as the bottom strip the idea for my card came to me quite quickly.


I silver embossed the Uniko butterfly on vellum and fussy cut it out. Then did some masking and stamping in gold and silver delicata ink to finish off my card

The DT have all created the most stunning cards. You can check them out here and then it is time to get inky and join in the fun!

I am sneaking my card in at the last minute to the 'Flight challenge at CASology-better late than never!
 I will also enter this into the 'wings' challenge at Mixed Media Card Challenge-yes, it is CAS but I have embossing, vellum and dimension!

  4. I saw your post on my blog with your name and the image of the sketch, and I was thinking how you would solve this task keeping to your signature CAS style. And reading the post I understand it was a challenge, but not only did you manage making it looking CAS, but also it turned out to be a really stunning design. Bravo!
