TJ Sketch Challenge Card #2

I love a well designed sketch, don't you? Even if it is my own challenge, and I can't win anything...I still love a challenge.  YOU can win, though -- you can become a Technique Junkie Subscriber for life by entering your own card! (Details of the Contest are on this Blog Post.) You do need to be a Technique Junkie though -- and if you aren't, maybe you should be! Only $9.00 for a trial, 3-issue subscription OR $9.99 for one full year (90 Tutorials!) of online-only access. In fact -- you can take an additional $1.00 off either of those prices if you mention the "Blog Sale" -- but that will only be good through Friday, so hurry. It's a good deal!

The card I have today is almost opposite of the first one I posted (in the blog post mentioned above). Where that was was soft and soothing, this one is garish and in-your-face. Bold colors. Bold attitude.

I used the Dabbed Shimmers (February 2010 issue) as the "A" Squares, the Double Embossed Metal (February 2010 issue) for the "C" Squares, and a technique I am considering using in the future for the "B" squares. The Leaf stamp behind the words is from Club Scrap, and the words are from Impression Obsession. I like this bold card.

I hope this card inspires you to try the sketch!

Absolutely beautiful Pat. (And you're such a technique tease, I'm trying to figure out what that 3rd technique might be...lol)

Gorgeous card Pat! I love the bold colors you've used - very rich and textural. I'm also wondering about this 3rd technique.... ;-)

I love your card and the colors you chose. Change the message and this would be a beautiful Christmas card.

Great card. I like bold. It reminds me a little of my serendipity (man style bold). Very nice.
