sketchy thursdays october gdt challenge

The current Design Team for Sketchy Thursdays doesn't usually play along with the GDT challenge, but this week we are. Heidi worked with Gauche Alchemy and their DT to put together a wonderful challenge for all of us.

As my bloggy friend, Lauren, has pointed out many, many times—any Sketchy Thursdays sketch can be a card sketch. And she is so right! I really liked making this sketch fit onto a card, and am loving how it turned out. I used a mix of My Mind's Eye and American Crafts products.

This is the sketch Heidi made, and check out the details about the prize from Gauche Alchemy on the Sketchy Thursdays challenge blog.

The winner gets to work with us at Sketchy Thursdays for the month of October, get the sketches in advance and be featured along side the DT each week. Oh, and don't forget the fab prize (did you head on over and sneak a peek at it yet)!! It's the Nature Calls kit from Gauche Alchemy.

Can't wait to see what you create! You have until 11:59 p.m. (EST) Saturday, September 18 for your chance to become our next GDT. See you over there!

ooooo... I'll definitely have to use this sketch -- so cool!! :) Love your card and I left you some comments on your flickr layout photos! And you are totally right... I should definitely get some more 365!! ;) LOL I love those little flowers I got from you. I'm having to force myself to part with them!! I am waiting for the new Pink Paislee and Websters to get here to use the other three... I think they will go well with a couple of the collections!! :) Hope you have a great weekend Diana!!
