For a while now I have been wanting to try a "sketch challenge" a few of the women I follow do them all the time and the cards always turn out so pretty. So, I gave it a whirl today.
While searching for a Sketch site I also found ABC Challenge site and decided to incorporate their challenge: L is for List (1 ribbon, 6 brads and 3 flowers) onto my sketch.
The sketch site I finally decided on trying for my very first sketch is Creative Inspirations a fairly new Challenge site.
I had a very hard time with this sketch, maybe it was a bit ambitious for my first go or maybe this is just not how my brain works. But I did the best I could.
Over at Think Monday Think ATC the challenge for today is Peacock and I have the lovely peacock feather image but it is to large for an ATC so I used it as the theme behind my card.

The 3 flowers are blurry b/c I used Pearl Ex powder so they shimmer a bit but I sealed them with a matt finish and it left a bit of a film...off to see if I can repair the damage.
Hope you like my first attempt and I hope in the future after I am all settled from the big move to give it a go again.
