How cool huh to get all of the info go to here.
Here are the sketches your sapposed to follow, nice huh.

So here are my cards for the challenge, I have to say I love how they turned out but the picture definately does not do them justice if you want to see them a little better go to this page on my splitcost gallery.

Beates challenge

I decided to do Beates's challenge this weekend, here is the sketch

So here is my card, im not to happy with it. I don't know what it is but everything on this card drives me nuts. The image is offcenter, the ribbon isn't quite the same on each side and I dont like this sentiment with it for some reason. I tried to take it off but the dimensionals were ripping the paper so I gave up. But here it is anyway.

Recipe:Stamps:Upsy daisy, punches three

Ink:versamark, going grey

Paper: basic grey, whisper white, baja breeze

Misc:White ep, scallop square punch, baja striped grosgrain ribbon, silver brads.
