Sketch Challenge for Caseing the Catty

This week the challenge at Caseing the Catty is a sketch challenge from page 17 of the Sale-a-bration Catalogue - the gorgeous projects from the design team members are truely inspirational.

I really was inspired by the sketch BUT, I have really travelled around the design somewhat!!!  I have the lovely oval in the centre of the card, and the layered background, and there is a butterfly..........

I was having so much fun, that I've made two different designs inspired by this sketch challenge!!!

My colours are inspired by the Adventure Bound Paper pack that I've used as my centrepiece of the panel.  The Always Artichoke comes from the reverse of the wood paneling piece.  After I punched the oval from the patterned paper, I didn't want to waste it.... so, I punched the little butterfly and the hearts from my piece.  The panel which peeks through the oval window  is a sponged panel of the Irresistibly Yours DSP from Sale-a-bration.

I love all the vintage textures of this card!  And it has been ages since I've created a vintage card in my favourite neutrals tones!!


  1. Love your interpretation of the sketch, the colours and all the little layered embellishments. Thanks for joining us at CTC this week.

  2. I love your card! I wish I could do layered shabby chic, but I just can't. I love all the little elements here....the heart..the ribbon lace layers and I love your use of the background DSP. :)
    Thanks for joining us at CTC this week. :)

  3. Another beautiful card Julia! LOVING all the details and layers you have going on. Glad you'll be joining us on the team next week ;)
