Practicing Creativity July release sneak peek!

Hi all! I am here to share a card made using Practicing Creativity's July release - My Beach Cottage!

We also have a special sketch challenge for you. Each of the DT members of Courtney's team designed a sketch, you can pick which sketch you want to use to enter the challenge. You don't have to use stamps from Practicing Creativity, but we'll love it if you can! There is also a prize up for grab. The winner will get a $50 gift card to the Practicing Creativity store!! Wow! How is that for a prize! You have until July 15th to play!

Here is my card:

I used the beautiful coral and starfish images from the new set to build my focal panel. I used the color layering technique and just treated the stamps as branches and flowers. =)

And here is my sketch:



I used one of the border stamps for my pink panel. I love the beautiful rope-like design of it, so classy! The card base is stamped with more coral and starfish images with spring rain for a tone-on-tone subtle look.

Please visit Courtney's blog for more peek, all the sketches and all the details of the sketch challenge. Don't forget that you can also win this beautiful new stamp set by commenting on Courtney's blog during the sneak peek week! You can see the other two DT members' sketches by visiting their blogs, too. Here is Dana's blog and Paulina's blog. I know they have some amazing cards to share with you, so please stop by and say hi!

I can't wait to see what you make using our sketches! =)


Thanks for stopping by!

ps. I'll be back later with a card for TESC!!
