Hello readers and welcome back from the weekend! I hope you found a little time to do something crafty. Who noticed that I made a few small changes on my website last week?! It was time for a mini refresh, so I added a new home page sliding display and an updated photograph of myself. I'm happy with how the changes added a little more color and artisic flair to the website!
Well, it's Monday and every Monday means that we have a new challenge to share with you at the Inky Paws Challenge by Newton's Nook. Challenge #135 is a sketch challenge. Using the sketch shown in the image below, we want YOU to share your creations with us!
Here is the card I created inspired by the sketch:
*A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
This A2 sized card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I used a piece of miscellaeous woodgrain cardstock for the first 5 1/4" x 4" mat. I used a green piece of gingham paper and a strip of gold paper to create the diagonal lines of the sketch. In the lower right corner of the card I heat embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder. I stamped the poinsettia images from the Poinsettia Blooms stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the white cardstock and colored the images with Copic markers. I die cut a white scalloped circle to act as a base or grounding point for the poinsettia flowers. I die cut the flowers using the coordinating Poinsettia Blooms die set. I adhered the flowers to the card using 3M foam adhesive. Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the flowers for added sparkle.
Are you ready to get your paws inky with us and play along for a chance to win?! We will randomly select one linked entry to receive a $20 store credit to the Newton's Nook Designs online shop!
We will also highlight our favorites from each challenge the following Monday, so that all entries have a chance to be featured on the Newton's Nook Designs blog.

Deadline to enter is Friday, November 6th, 2020, at midnight CST.
