Die Cuttin' Divas Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Happy 2014!

It's time for a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas, and 
this week's challenge is...
a Sketch Challenge.

I made this anniversary card for my sister and brother-in law, but shhh...don't tell!  It's coming up soon, and since she's not a blogger, I think I can surprise them.
Here's the sketch for the challenge, designed by the very talented, Georgiana!

Other news from Die Cuttin' Divas includes the addition of two new Design Team Divas!  Be sure to visit the DCD blog to welcome Connie and Shelly to the team.  And check out the creative projects by all the design team Divas.

To enter this week's challenge, make a card or layout following the sketch shown above.  Be sure to include a die-cut in your project  and link your post back to the Die Cuttin' Divas site by January13.

I think I really like the color combos I used.  The plaid and orange striped papers are from DCWV Animal Crackers.  The green paper with polka dots is from Recollections Bold Basics, as is the green diamond patterned paper. 

The pears are cut from Just Because Cards cartridge, and the mat behind it came from Art Philosophy cartridge.  The mat was embossed with Musical Flourish and the leaves with Herringbone.  The sentiment is typed from my computer, and I popped up that and the pears with foam squares as you can see above.  The adhesive accents are from Heidi Grace. 

I finished the inside with matching papers and applied a heart border along the bottom.

I'd like to also enter this card into the following challenges:
FCCB #192 - use a sentiment
Just B Creative Crazy - just because/anything goes
LSP Fun Friday Linky Party - anything goes

Thanks so much for stopping by; I appreciate your visits!
