ABC Sketch Challenge!

Good Monday morning!  Hope you had a good weekend.  I had a great one!  As usual though, it went by way too fast.  So I say let's get the new week rolling and see what sort of mischief we can get into! :)  Today is a brand new ABC Challenge day!  Wooo Hoooo!!  The challenge over there is a sketch challenge and I just LOVE those!! Take a look at this great sketch:

So many possibilities with this one!!  Here is the card I made:

I stuck pretty closely to the basic sketch layout, but I did add a few elements!

Little bit of stamping, a little bit of sewing and a little bit of punching!  I thought it had kind of a steampunk /gears kind of feel to it when I finished!  

Lots of fun stuff going on here! I was a little concerned about trying to mesh all the different bold patterns, but decided they worked together nicely.  

Stamps: Lacy and Lovely and Tiny Tags
Paper: Marina Mist, Soft Suede, Whisper White and Cafe Comfort DSP
Ink: Marina Mist and Basic Black
Punches and Dies: 3/4" Circle punch, 1" Circle punch, 1 1/4" Circle punch, 2 1/2" Circle punch and Large Butterfly punch
Extras: Essentials piercing pack, Mini Silver Brads, White Gel pen and piercing pack

Fun, fun sketch challenge!!  Are you ready to play along?!  Head on over to ABC Challenges to get all of the details and then get to crafting!  Cannot wait to see what you come up with! Also, you can now follow ABC Challenges on Pinterest here and on Facebook here!!  

Have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!

I think your patterns go together perfectly. I especially love the butterfly using the DSP - perfectly punched. Lovely card :o)
