Sketch #3 Challenge

This challenge we didn't have many entries but we did have a tie for first place.  #1 Lynne and #3 Debi B have tied for first place and are eligible for our Cards in Envy Winner's Button.  Please pick up your Winner's Button code on the Winners Tab above.  

Believe it or not, everyone else was tied up so we are inviting all the rest of the entries for this challenge to grab the Cards in Envy Top 3 button from the tab above and proudly display it on your blog.  

Thank you all for joining us for this challenge.  Congratulations to everyone!!!

Hello Everyone!  Happy April 1st!  We at Cards in Envy hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend.  For our challenge this fortnight we have the Cards in Envy Sketch #3:

 Seriously?  Nah.... April Fools!!!!

Our "REAL" Sketch this fortnight is just a tad bit less cluttered ...

 Please feel free to interpret the sketch any way you wish as along as we can see the original sketch in your finished card.   Please remember, Cards in Envy is for cards that fit into a regular first class postage envelope.  The most common size being the A2 (5.5 inch x 4.25 inch) OR a square card ( 5 inch x 5 inch or SMALLER).  And please remember no lumpy bumpy embellishments.  A good rule of thumb is--only one layer on foam tape, no buttons on foam tape, flatter flowers (paper flowers are good), no rosettes, no super thick buttons or brads, etc.  If all layers and embellishments together are thicker than 1/4 inch then it's not a card for Cards in Envy.  

The challenge starts today, Monday, April 1st and runs until April 14th.  We will pick one winner (the best over all) and the Top Three.  Winner and Top Three will earn a Cards in Envy Badge for their blog.

And now for the Cards in Envy Design Team Inspiration Cards ...
