Winners For Sketch 366

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


The Queen of Clean:  Amber from Forever Amber's Art




Thanks so much to everyone who joined us in the gallery this week!  It's been truly tough to choose just one card among all those beautiful entries. Still, Amber's gorgeous Christmas card caught my eye. I love the neutral colors, the use of corrugated paper for the striped background, the sweet little image and the tiny bells. Actually I could say I love everything about her card. Congratulations, Amber you're this week's Queen of Clean!


Please join us next week for a new sketch designed by Karren!

Hi, it's Cécile here. I'm so glad to be  your hostess for this week's challenge.

Kim has chosen the Queen!


The Queen of Clean:  Maria from Cardbomb


Thank you so much to all of our players!  It is amazing to see the variety of cards that come out of a single sketch.  This week, Maria's absolutely charming penguin caught my eye.  I love the little scene she created in the square and the woodgrain to add interest in the background.  Also, if you click over to her blog, check out her other pictures to see all of the wonderful sparkle.  Congratulations, Maria, you're this week's Queen of Clean!

Freshly Made Sketches #364 - A Sketch by Kim

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!

Thank you for dropping by and checking out this week's sketch.  This one's by me - Kim!!  I hope you like it.  I always get excited by sketches with the "any shape" option (although all of our sketches are just a starting point for your creativity).  I put this sketch together with the thought of a layered snowflake as the shape.  That card didn't quite come together - so then I used a squirrel with a latte(!)  I didn't like that one either so I went with a Christmas ornament.  That's why I love sketch challenges - they allow for so much creativity!  Have fun!
