"Think you can't change the world? Too late, you already have.
It was changed for the better the minute you were born.
There are more people than you can imagine who will never be the same
because they came in contact with you,
if only for a fleeting moment."

CLP sketch challenge #34

Hello, friends! It's March already, can you believe it?! 
(And; It's my birthday in a few days! Yay! :D ).

It's time for a new monthly sketch challenge at the CLP challenge blog!
I just love Chelsea Le's lovely designed sketches! It's such a pleasure working with them! :) 

This time we are being sponsored by Prairie Fairy Designs. (That's the other DT I'm on - Woohooo!) 

I have actually made 2 cards for this challenge, one of them with a digital stamp from this month's sponsor. 

We'll be happy to see you stop by and enter your gorgeous creations with us to admire!! :D 

My first card is made with a cute Sugar Nellie stamp called "Pen Pals". The image is coloured with ProMarkers. DPs from MME, Prima and Kaisercraft. I have used dies from magnolia and BossKut, a Fiskars circle punch with hearts and the embellishments you can see. Seam binding ribbon that I've hand dyed is a favourite with me. :)

All edges are distressed with Cat's Eye fluid chalks.

I enter this card into the following challenges:

Favourite embellishment these days: seam binding ribbon. 
And I always love distressing, one way or the other! :)

My second card, based on the same sketch:

It's made with the Prairie Fairy Designs image "Harbor Gulls". Colouring done with ProMarkers.
Papers from Basic Grey, different charms with maritime theme, hand dyed seam binding ribbon, ++.. 
The distressing is done with both edge scraper and Cat's Eye fluid chalks.

Update: Answer to questions about where the template I used on my nautical card is from: I forgot to tell you  that it's a free template you can find on Lili of the Valley's web pages, under Inspiration -> Free Templates! :)) Just head over there, print out and use! :))

I enter this card into the following challenges:

Here's the lovely sketch for the #34 challenge:
Have fun with it, enjoy! We're looking forward to see ALL your wonderful entries!! :))

Hugs, Hege
