Foxy - We are starting a new sketch challenge at Seems a Little Sketchy. Before I get to my card, we have a few things to share with you about Seems a Little Sketchy.

First of all, for this challenge we are being joined with the challenge at Creative Card Crew. Both challenges will be using this sketch for their challenge. You can make one card, using this sketch and enter it in both challenges, and you can enter up to 3 projects at each site, so you could make 3 cards using this sketch and enter it in each challenge. 

Now, Creative Card Crew doesn't go live until tomorrow, so those of you who visit here at Seems a Little Sketchy are getting a leg up on this challenge. 

Both challenges are fortnightly, however Creative Card Crew closes at noon (US CST) on the Sunday prior to their new challenge, so you will have to get it in a bit earlier there.

We are also trying something new, in that you will find a page at Seems a Little Sketchy that shows are sketches for the next couple of months. That's right we are showing you our sketches before they go live, so that those of you who are on DT's and like to work ahead, you will have our sketch before it goes live and will be able to enter our challenge when it does go live, with a card that you had made a month or more out. I must caution though, that the no back linking rule still applies, so just be sure to get your timing right.

Now let's get down to this sketch. It was created by my teamie, Lauri. I really like this sketch. It is simple and easy to follow.

We are sponsored by Scribbles and they gave us some really cute images to play with. This one is Foxy 2. I colored it with Copics.

My DP is 7 Gypsies, Venice. I like the dark browns in this paper pad. All of the dies are SB. I finished off the die with some tiny chocolate pearls from my dear friend Judy at Pizzazz Aplenty. She has all of these tiny pearls in different colors and her prices are fabulous. She is having a Buy One Get One Free sale going on until the end of the month. These pearls were one of my buys from her sale.

Sentiment and stamp are SU.

Shopping Our Stash #133 use something new. the cream colored paper was cut with a new SB and the pearls are also new.
