2 sketches 4......CAARDVARKS!!!

that's right! your favorite sketch challenge (2 sketches 4 you) and your favorite card-making challenge (CAARDVARKS) have teamed up for our latest double-header: you have until midnight on 8-3-08 to make a lovely new card based on laura's sketch:

or kazan's sketch:

or both! of course this is the course i have chosen...because there was no way i could decide on ONLY ONE of these great sketches!

here is my kazan card:

(patterned paper: making memories, basic grey, creative imaginations, dcwv, vintage ledger paper; flowers: prima; felt border: fancy pants: rub-on sentiment: american crafts; rubber stamps: hero arts; brads: making memories, hot off the press; other: foam tape, colorbox inks)

and here is my laura card:

(photo of my nieces posing as space girls printed on kodak premium paper; patterned paper: basic grey, chatterbox, christina cole; text icon made in broderbund printshop using "3 hour tour" font; other: foam tape, colorbox inks)

text reads,"wishing you a birthday that's out of this world!"

so whip up your own fabulous creations and link them to the sketch challenge post and you will not only be included in our lovely kazan's sketch or laura's sketch gallery... (where surely wolrd-wide fame and lasting renown await you!) ...but you'll also have a shot at a fabulous prize: you'll be CAARDVARKS' guest designer for the august 20th challenge!!!
