September Challenge

Hello and welcome to September. 

Our challenge to you this month is this sketch from Pagemaps

Here is how the design team interpreted the sketch:

When I started to make this card it wasn't my intention to use only black, white and grey it just evolved this way. I am really pleased with the result especially as cards are not really my forte. The stamps are all PaperArtsy. 

Well, I totally love the sketch and tried to stay as true to the design as possible.  I've used my Fuse tool to make the transparent hearts and added blink inside to make the layout more playful!

My page for September, the story behind the photo is on my blog.

This sketch looked like a romantic card to me.  I love the combination of all the textures and colors.

Entries will close at 23:59 GMT on 29th September and a winner will be chosen at random after that to win a mystery prize which will be revealed in our mid month inspiration post.

Again I was faced with multiple entries not qualifying for the prize draw because they had entered too many other challenges.

Without further ado though the winner for July was Jen with this lovely card

The winner for August was Kitty with this superhero card.
