April Monthly Sketch Challenges

Hello everyone and welcome to the April Sketch Challenges.  Below you will find the Layout Sketch and the Card Sketch, to be completed and submitted by Pumpkin Time on the 14th of May.  You may use anything in your stash for the sketch, but we must be able to recognize the sketch.  We hope that you will be inspired to create your layout or card using the sketches designed by the wonderful Melinda Spinks for Scrapville, and we look forward to sharing your work.  Thanks again Melinda.
April/May Layout Sketch

Hip Hop by Michelle Rogers (Guest CT) 
This layout is from Michelle, featuring her daughter Amy at one of her dance concerts.  With Blogger being a little temperamental of late this lovely image and my previous post disappeared, so I have re-posted.  Having been featured on the "Wall of Fame" in Scrapville announcing our April Sketch Challenge, I have to say I love this layout by Michelle.  I love the brightness, the colours and the black accessories of the tulle flower and beading.
A look at the distressing of the BoBunny papers, the black beading trim and the tulle flower.
At the top of the layout we have a nice touch to Michelle's paper flowers, being doubled over and blinged up in a half circle.  A nice balance.

Eat Cake Card by Sally Clark (CT)
There is some blinging up here with the Dimensional Magic and a bit of glitter.  The Vinyl Thickers look fantastic with an outline drawn onto the letters, then layered with a coat of the DM.  A few extra dots on the dots, and a nice big i-Top brad on top of the cupcake and you have an awesome card.  Very, very girlie.  Well done Sally.

I will have more samples from the girls shortly.
