SCS Sketch Challenge...




Ok so today I did a sketch challenge at scs and wow was I pressed for time. I'm not to happy with how the cards turned out compared to all the amazing cards I saw that were entered. The talent most of the women have is just amazing and it really blew my socks off... It just went to show me I have alot of improving to do and I need to get better at this craft. What I made was not even close to being in their league...

But...The bread baskets images came today for me and what a suprise it was... Dear sweet Claire sent them to me, it's the first thing I have ever gotten from England. Thank you ,Thank you, Dear Sweet Claire... you made my week...

Oh Erin, I can't believe you're not happy with these. They are both gorgeous. I think your rocked the sketch challenge. This was another challenge I took one look at and opted out of, because it looked too hard.

I like both of the cards! The way you layered the scallop squares on teh first card is so neat, and the embossing is beautiful too. I love the color of the second one a lot.

Beautiful cards. They are both so elegant. I like how you created the background on the dragon fly card. Your color combos were great for each card.

Oh Erin, your cards are fantastic! I really don't know why you think your cards aren't up there with others in SCS because they most definitely are!! You have a unique and beautiful style that stands against any other challenge cards. I love your work, it's outstanding, as are both of these wonderful cards. Chris
