New Challenge Time!!!

Over at Once Upon A...Sketch, we are nearing the end of our first year and during this time we have noticed a huge amount of support from many countries around the world and we are incredibly lucky that our challenges are supported by so many people from all different parts of the globe. One of these countries is Greece, and we have come to realise that we receive many entries from such a small country where scrapbooking is so new, so we had a think and decided to team up with another challenge blog based in Greece and run by our very own Irini Liolia called Get Creative. How exciting!! We have decided to become "sister" blogs, because let's face it...most of us scrapping are women and is there anything stronger than a sisterhood? So for this month only, the Design Team from Once Upon A..Sketch are guests over at Get Creative and taking part in their 1st and 15th of the month challenges and the Design Team from Get Creative are guests on Once Upon A..Sketch! Thus a new bond is formed between 2 challenge blogs.

Here is the sketch that the Once Upon A..Sketch Design Team had to follow. It is created by Get Creative Design Team member Elina Katechi.

And here is my take on the sketch...
I used **Imaginarium Designs chipboad butterflies on this and lots of WOW Embossing powders by Suzy West.I added some stickles too and some misting. Here are some closeups:

The largest blooms is one that I made by hand.

Supplies used:
Prima patterned paper
WOW Embossing Powder Suzy West collections: Pantry
Imaginarium Designs chippie butterflies
Dusty Attic chipboard border

So head on over to the Get Creative blog to see what the rest of the Design Team created and to find out what prizes etc are up for grabs and then visit Once Upon A...Sketch to see the February 1st challenge.

Very beautiful Patti - I love the treatment you have given those butterflies! Your daughter makes the perfect 50's model and your layout is lovely - great misting and just the right amount of white space too!
