The Challenge Team is at it again with inspiring creations. Let's see how they interpreted Sketch 242!
Alice shifted the meat of the sketch to the right and used the doily as the oval of the sketch. It's a perfect place to feature the Coffee Cup Die-namics stamped and colored BEAUTIFULLY with florals from the Polynesian Paradise stamp set.
Jill concentrated on the circle and flag of the sketch in this die cut dream. Though there is no oval to be seen, the arrows of the Four Way Chevron Cover-Up Die-namics give the illusion of an oval, and the word bubble and sentiment give an extra dose of fun to her design. And does anyone else's wrist ache a little bit just thinking about all of the die cutting that Jill did? I thought so.
Miriam used the oval to highlight a lovely Hawaiian princess from the Polynesian Paradise stamp set. She sticks pretty closely to the sketch with her sentiment and pretty flowers emulating the circle and flag of the original sketch.
Vera put the Tiki Hut Die-namics to work as the oval of the sketch, and she turned the sketch on its side to accommodate her fresh and sunny scene. The sentiment is shrunk and shifted to the right, but her enamel dot gives a nod to the circle in the sketch.
Veronica pulls off a lovely design with lots of delicious background stamping on her oval and the card base. The circle becomes the perfect spot for a sweet bouquet of pretty roses, and the sentiment tops off this special creation.
