Another Chance to Win

OMG - I got so caught up in the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop last week that I totally forgot something very important when I put up my "post-hop" card!  That design (see below/Sat.'s entry) was meant to remind you that you have yet another chance to win a great SNS stamp set of your choice if you enter this month's Sketch Challenge!

Here's the sketch:

All the details for joining in on SNS's Monthly Sketch challenge can be found on the Sketch Challenge Tab on the SNS Blog (click here to go directly there)!

And here's what I did with the sketch:

I kept my layout very close to the sketch - keeping the overall square shape, the large circle focal point and the decorative background strip.  Basically, all I changed was to rotate the sketch 1/4 turn and eliminate the rounded ends on the strip.  This is such a great sketch for when you really want your main image to be the focal point of the card!  And that's exactly what I wanted since I was adding a lot of details to my image.  More information and additional pics of this project can be found in my previous post (on Sat).

If you'd like to see what some of the other girls did with this sketch, click here to go directly to the July sketch page to see some more examples.

Now it's your turn!  Why not give it a try?!  There's so many great SNS images that scream to be the focal point of an awesome card!  Pick one out & join in on the fun!!  And don't forget, a SNS stamp set will be awarded to one lucky entrant!  We look forward to seeing what YOU come up with!!  I hope you'll join in on the fun!

Until next time,
