August 2012 Sketch Challenge

BEFORE I TURN THE TIME OVER TO JACQUELINE, I (Mynnette) would like to make a point of something that has been troubling our DT.  We want ALL of you to continue to enter, but we need you to know that IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE RULES OF OUR CHALLENGE, YOU WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE TO  WIN ANY OF OUR HONORS AND/OR PRIZES.  So, please take time to review the rules, either at the end of this post or on our rules tab.  Thanks and merry stamping!  Over to Jacqueline!

Good morning everyone and welcome to the start of a new round of challenges here at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - it's my turn (Jacqueline) to set the challenges and as always at the start of the month we have the Sketch Challenge - take a look...

Please feel free to rotate or flip the sketch and some of the shapes may be substituted too however we still need to see the basic sketch in your Christmas cards.
Now scroll down to see what the dt have come up with for you this week - don't forget to click on the names to visit the blogs

On break this week

Please link up your projects below, and follow these rules:

*Please link back to our blog in your post so that others can join in the fun.
*We would love it if you added our button to the side of your blog
*Please make sure to link to your POST, not your blog.
*Please make sure NOT to back link.
*In order to be considered for Top Honor or Honorable Mention, you must link up by Friday at 6:00pm GMT.
*You are free to enter this challenge and 10 others only.
*We'd really appreciate it if you'd turn off word verification so that we can comment more easily! We know a lot of you do this for safety, but it takes a very long time to comment when verification is activated, and you may lose your comments from us...just sayin'. ;)


  1. A fairly strict sketch and yet 6 very different cards. Well done, ladies!

  2. When I first saw the sketch I thought I wouldn't be able to do it, but your designers have brought fantastic examples for inspiration! Now I'm thinking that I may be able to do this!!

  3. Terrific designs and inspiration for this sketch xx

  4. must say the sketch scared me but then i saw the wonderful cards the DT created. going to give it a try :) thanks for the inspiration!!
