Still Sketchy

Well we're on the downward run to Pumpkin Time with our Sketch Challenges now, having passed the halfway mark.  Keep them coming, we are seeing some fantastic work.  And don't forget, you can rotate or flip the Sketches to suit your creations, but the Sketch must be recognizable.  We have a couple more here from the Creative Team girls, who are keeping very busy at the moment.
Summer by Anita Bowlan (CT)
Anita has used a floral patterned paper for her background, and tied this in with the doiley, title thickers and punched borders.  The cutouts and layers on the flowers and leaves add a nice dimension to the layout, and Anita has also used some stitching on the circles, adding to their definition.  The central photo is further emphasized by the doiley border, and the great colours.
For You card by Sally Clark (CT)
Sally has used her eyelet punch to decorate the right edge.  A layer of coloured paper has been put behind the holes to tie in the colour theme.  The circle has been layered and tied off with a sewn button in the centre.  A small sentiment stamp and inked edges finish it off.

Wow Sally, I would never have thought of the hole punch decorative edge - thanks for the inspiration. And Anita, love, love, love your work with the sketch.

That's such a pretty layout Anita, especially the doiley matting the photo. Your card's stunning Sally - love all that white space and punched border
