Freshly Made Sketches #246 - A Sketch by Rita

Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches!  Each week, one member of our design team creates a sketch for you to try, the twist is to keep your project clean-lined and fresh! The "Clean Team" has come up with some "Freshly Made" designs to get you in the spirit! We are so excited to visit you and to see what YOU create with our sketch!

Hello!  It's Rita here this week with a new sketch to challenge and inspire you.  I've recently fallen into the Tim Holtz craze, so tags are my new obsession.  Of course here we want to keep our creations fresh and clean, so I put my distressing tools aside.  :)  I hope you will enjoy creating with a tag and some fun layers on top!  I can't wait to see what you come up with! 
We have a few simple rules to keep things fun and fair for all of our players:
  1. Please use any crafting product you would like to use.
  2. Feel free to combine our sketch with up to THREE other challenges, except another sketch challenge.
  3. Please add a DIRECT link to your blog or other online gallery when adding your card to the linky below.  If linking to a public gallery, please use keyword FMS246.
  4. Please include our sketch and a link back to Freshly Made Sketches on your post.
  5. Have fun!
This challenge will end at 12:00p (noon) PDT on Mondaym July 25th. On Tuesday we will announce the winner of this week's sketch challenge who will known as the "Queen of Clean" and each Design Team Member will choose one "Princess".

Winners For Sketch 245!

The Clean Team has chosen the Princesses for you this week and our hostess Jen has chosen the Queen!

The Queen of Clean: Mary from My Other World

Thanks to everyone who played along with our sketch.  The gallery was positively alive with your creativity!  I chose Mary's card this week because I loved how she combined subtle colors and several layers to create a card with so many thing to see.  The textured background, the sequins, and rhinestones really draw your eye in to the leaves, butterflies, and die cut layer.  Congratulations Mary!  You are the Queen of Clean!

Please come back tomorrow for a new sketch from Rita!
