New MyGrafico Challenges Sketch Day!

Today starts Team B's sketch challenges with MyGrafico Challenges and I am thrilled to be a part of this team because I love a good sketch! So without further ado, let's get to it!

This is the sketch, created by team member Melissa:
















And here's my card:




















We're starting October out right by celebrating breast cancer awareness. The digi set that we are using - and that you can win - is this delightful set:




















So let me tell you a little about my card. I have to confess that I "cheated" on this one. Most of the card was created in Photoshop. I created the background by "coloring" the flower in the program and then, using the Grid in Photoshop, I was able to create a repetitive background which I simply printed and cut to the correct size. The sentiment was stamped with a set of $1 alphabet stamps I got at Michael's and I added a loop of PTI ribbon and a couple of self-stick pearls to finish it off.

So now it's YOUR turn to play along. Create a card based on the sketch or check out Team A's Monday challenge and get creative! Then post to your blog or other online gallery and link on over at MyGrafico Challenges blog. If you try your hand at both weekly challenges, you'll be entered to win twice!

And for more inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of Team B to see what they have posted for you:

Homework is finally caught up around here and I have another jam-packed day ahead of me but more on the fun side. Haircut, lunch out with a friend and camera shopping are just a few things on my list! AND be sure to stop back tomorrow for a fun post and a chance to win some BLOG CANDY!
