Sketch challenge CTC#458

Hello and Welcome to Handmade by Julia Quinn.

Tonight I'm hopping with a bunch of awesome stampers in our Sunday Night Blog Hop CASEING the CATTY.  To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit and we love to CASE from our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues - CATTY.

Today we are CASEING a sketch from our Sale-a-bration catalogue.

I love a good sketch!!  I've used this as my starting point for a cute card featuring the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid embossing folder.  

I created 2 versions of the same card - which do you like better?  I made the all Pretty Peacock one first but thought that the main element got lost with all the same colour, so then I made the white feature panel.  

The background paper is just divine - it comes from the Forever Love specialty paper - and it was my starting point.

My central panel was cut using the Thoughtful Expressions dies.

I love how you can make a bunch of cool greetings all at once using the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid emobssing folder.

Inside the card reflects the gorgeous colours of the front of the card with some fun elements from the Thoughtful Expressions dies and the adhesive backed gold glimmer paper.  

So which do you think looks better?  The white front or the continuous Pretty Peacock?

Make sure you keep hopping to see lots more great ideas with this sketch!

And there's lots more inspiration on our Facebook Group here.
