Sparkle N Sprinkle's November Sketch Challenge

We have a new sketch challenge at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenges blog.  It is hard to believe November has arrived, though around me it feels more like the middle of December.  The weather has created very difficult situations for so many and you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Here is the sketch for the November challenge.  So many possibilities!!  And here is my card, using the new sketch and Sparkle N Sprinkle stamps, Warmest Sympathy and Ivy Background.

The background is heat embossed with Winter White EP and the lacy strips are created using Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter and a combination of the Masking on Velvet Glitter Technique and the Alcohol Inks on Velvet Glitter Technique.  Both can be found in our Tips and Techniques section and full card instructions can be found here.

You will have until 8:00 p.m. ET on the last day of the month to enter your creation and have a chance to win a stamp set of your choice.  For all the details and guidelines, head on over to our new challenge blog.  Check out what my fellow designers have created to inspire you.

What are you waiting for?  Head to that craft room and get started!!
