GCA #31 - Time to get Sketchy!!!

I know, I know what a goofy title, but hey it got your attention right?

Hello all!! This week we are using one of the first sketches introduced for the Sketch Challenge on SCS!! I've made cards with this sketch before and I ALWAYS have trouble getting a good end result! But, I saw a card on SCS by Vera that uses a similar layout and decided to give it another try!

So for this week's GCA we are using the sketch layout from SC38. Click on the link and it will take you to the thread for SC38 and show you the layout.

On my sample I combined a couple of last week's challenges into one card: CC207 - Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun & Kiwi Kiss; WT207 and my GCA!!!

I just love the colors of the CC for last week! They are very retro felling to me and give off a 70's vibe!! And I think they are very fresh and springy and I am so wanting spring to arrive!!!

The WT for last week was Frugal Finds! All of the cardstock I used on here came out of my scrap bins, the thick foam dimensionals under the circle panels is one large square cut into two different pieces and the dimensional under the flower is from the edge of a pack of SU! dimensionals. No need to overdo on those when no one sees them! I'm very frugal with my ribbon too, and I try very hard not to cut more than I need as I always trim the ends! And my copper edge circle tag I've had forever!!! It's an old/retired tag from SU!

My inside was sponged with Summer Sun and then I stamped the vine from Fresh Cuts in each of the colors and the flower in Pumpkin Pie and Summer Sun. I then stamped a flower on the textured Summer Sun, cut it out and adhered it over the vine ends!!

To be entered in the challenge drawing, make a card with SC38, upload it either to your blog, or to an online gallery and post a link to your card to this blog entry as a comment by March 6, 2009 at 12 midnight. Please also include the SC38 in your keywords when you upload!! I will choose the winner through a random number generator and post the next Saturday or Sunday.

Even if you can't make the drawing deadline, PLEASE feel free to participate in the challenge and upload your creations at any time. I would love to see it!If you upload your card on SCS, or Paper Craft Planet, please put GCA31(NO SPACE IN BETWEEN GCA AND 31) in the keyword section. That way everyone can look at all of the creations at once! If you've been waiting to join in the fun, jump on in and have some fun!!
Happy Stamping!!!

I hope you didn't think I forgot about the challenge. It's been really busy for me. SCS changed all the formats today. Now I have to get use to more changes.
Here is the link to my card.

I had a horribly busy week, and was hoping I could get to do your challenge!

Here's mine:

Superb. This was a hard challenge for me to do, but I really like the way you put it together! Pretty colors, and nicely layered! I might still try it though.
