Freshly Made Sketches Meets Colour Me!

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Wednesday is when I get to show off the latest new sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches.  Well today is an extra special Wednesday because I also get to show off the new color challenge at Colour Me!  That's right I'm joining the very talented ladies over there for the month of October!  

Sketch challenges and color challenges are two of my favorite things so when I get to combine them I'm in stamping heaven!  Before I get to my card and these new challenges I want to thank the ladies at Colour Me for inviting me to join them on their stamping adventures.  



This week our FMS sketch is designed by Narelle and the sketch is full of the layers she is so famous for!  I used stamped images to replicate those layers incorporating the monochromatic colors at Colour Me.

The design team cards for both Freshly Made Sketches and Colour Me are beautiful this week so be sure to check them out.  I hope that you can join us in the gallery for each (or both ) of the challenges this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
