CT Sketches for Jan/Feb

How are you going with those Sketches?  Today we are sharing some more Sketches from the girls to give your inspiration a little boost. I hope you are enjoying the challenge as much as I am enjoying seeing all these wonderful layouts and cards.  There's plenty of time to get on board, so come on girls......
Dylan by Sally Clark (CT)
Sally has used a very boyish range from Prima to complete her layout.  A border of light inking and baker's twine stitching brings in the colours from the PP's.  Scallop punches and scallop border punches tie these papers in together.
The bunting uses the woodgrain paper, which Sally has then tied together with the Jillibean Bakers Twine.
Here we can see better the mounting of the journal tag and scallop border, which is also layered.  Well done Sally.
Bloom by Claire Apostoloff (CT)
How many of us can remember this day?  My oh my - they were SO little!  Claire has done this little girl proud with Crate Paper and Echo park layered PP's, Webster's and Imaginisce embellies, a MM brass dragonfly punchies.  A great combination.
Using a Twiddlybits flourish and layering some flower punchies with a bling or button in the centre is a nice corner adornment for the photo.
An interesting take on the bunting is the floral kind; punchies, ribbons and trims, some pearls and you end up with a very fresh floral bunting.
The border embellies include this fine little metal dragonfly by Making Memories, a doily cut in half and a strip of PP for a ribbon.  Another inspirational layout Claire, well done.

As for the Card Sketches, we would also like to share these little gems.
Make a Wish by Anita Bownds (CT)
It's great to see just how much the girls are getting out of their Monthly Packs.  Anita has used a stamped cutout of the castle, handmade leaves behind the crocheted flower and some cut outs from the text paper which blend in with the white doily.  The border punched strips add a nice layer, well done Anita.
Card by Claire Apostoloff (CT)
Claire has tried a bit of stamping onto black cardstock, then coloured the petals.  The colours help define each area in this card, and the flower and pink border strip really make it pop.
Here we can see better the white and yellow colouring on the flowers.  Well done Claire.
