retrosketches #16...

Good morning! We were overjoyed to see so many entries last week, thank you all so much! We finished up the voting a little earlier this morning & I'm still sorting it all out - but I didn't want it to hold up this fabulous new sketch, so I'll post it a little later! (ETA - the ROCKstar and SHOUTSouts for last week are now posted here!)

Speaking of fabulous - we have N@ Ali as our guest designer today! I first "met" her when she started playing along at the colourQ - and I never fail to be impressed by her creativity and beautiful CAS style!
Today's sketch will probably scare you as much as it did us - but I think it's amazing inspiration for a little "out of the box" designing! As you'll see, the DT took it in all directions - so definitely give it a try! (If you take it literally - it's a great way to use up some scraps!)

Here is N@ new version of her previous card...

And here are our takes...

Things to remember:

  • The linky closes at 11:59pm on Thursday, June 21st, 2012.
  • You MUST use the sketch. If we cannot see the main elements of the sketch, your project might be removed or at the least, not eligible for winning or getting a shout out!
  • Enter as often as you like with a different project each time.
  • You are welcome to combine challenges.
  • HAVE FUN!!!

I hope you will play along this week!
