Week 20 Challenge - Sketch

It's Friday again! And I bet you thought you'd seen the back of me - but here I am again like a bad penny! Nikky asked me to step in this week to write the challenge post as she will be busy creating and demonstrating under hot studio lights at Create and Craft this morning, so I couldn't really refuse could I?!

Nikky will be demonstrating her latest cd as an exclusive on Create and Craft at 11am - the new cd is a double (but not double the price!) and has over 1,500 printable elements. It is called - Not For Girls - yeah a men's cd!! There is lots and lots of different themes on the cd's and will suit all male ages - it's a one stop shop cd!!

So, it's week 20 and it's time for another sketch
Nikky asked all the DT to follow the sketch and also to use the Christmas download Crimbley Doodles so you'll be able to see just how versatile the papers and elements are!

You can rotate it, flip it just as long as we can recognise the sketch then you are good to go! You can also use any papers and elements that you want - we would like you to use Polkadoodle products but if you haven't got any then that is fine. In fact, you could win some! If your entry is picked as the winner then you win something lovely from the Polkadoodle range!

This challenge is open until Sunday 11 October at noon GMT and last weeks challenge is still open until this Sunday - 4 October at noon GMT so you still have time to enter challenge 19!

But before I show you the Design Team samples, I need to announce the winners from Challenge 18 - DIY Flowers!

In Third Place: Littleted62
In Second Place: Dolly
The Winner is: Cornishmist

Congratulations! Please contact Nikky for further details and your blinkies!

And now onto the DT samples! All the DT cards were made using the Crimbley Doodles Christmas download with a few extra additions from their stash here and there. If you need more details on how each DT member made their creation, simply click on their name and you will be whisked there!

Boni has added some silver mesh to the front of her card and it is fastened with a sprig of holly cut from the backing papers.

Now this is not actually a card - Claire has made a gift box and followed the sketch on the lid - how clever! More shots of the box are on her blog.

I do like the scalloped cards and in icy blue too! This card is from Enfys - great tree! The blue and reds work so well together.

Kath has layered elements onto a lush red background and added some doodling. I do like chunky ribbon!

Kerry has opted for an icy blue Christmas - the snowflake used on both this card and Kath's are stampies from the download collection.

These are such funky Christmas trees! Kris has cut the trees out individually and layered them using silicone glue.

Now this is a fun and funk Christmas card from Krista! I like how all the layers are made up - overlapping and extending off the card.

Lou has also gone for a frosty winter theme and has made her own snowflakes with more delicate snowflakes and buttons layered over the top.

Saskia has added some funky fibres to her creation. I do like the little trees peeking from under the sentiment!

And finally, my card. I've used acetate as my base and cut out elements from the download and added them on - quite simple but a pain to photograph!

Hope you are inspired to join in this week - you can use any papers or embellishments you like as long as you follow the sketch. Please link to your creation rather than your blog as this makes it a lot easier for the DT to find your entry!

Good luck and we can't wait to see what you create!
