Our sketch challenges aim to give you a framework to enhance your creativity! We love seeing what you do with each element of the sketch and how creatively you fill the requirements of the challenge! This week, we had some lovely designs, with lots of fall gorgeousness!

Let me introduce you to our winners! Here they are:

Our Top Pick is: Lee Ann Barrett

You might want to check out the beautiful watercolouring and fussing cutting of Lee Ann's floral image in this beautiful card! It's masterful!! She also created a great background using orange colour burst powder and that slip of sheet music just suits the sentiment so well! What a vibrantly crafted card! Congratulations!

Our Featured Artist is: Maggie H.

Maggie's stenciled fall florals have created such a warm and welcoming bouquet. There's just something about stenciled images that you can't recreate with stamps! The Design Team loved that she paired the die-cut bouquet with the earthy plaid background paper, and that the vertical rectangle element of the sketch was full of texture for added interest! The bold die cut gold sentiment was a perfect addition which paired beautifully with the gold embossed on black. This was a real WOW!! card, Maggie! Congratulations for being chosen Featured Artist and ultimate winner of this challenge!
