July Sketch Challenge

Hello!  It's Patricia here, and I'm excited to be hosting the challenges for the month of July!  Thank you to Jacqueline for a fun month of June challenges, and thank you to everyone who joined in them.  The design team loves seeing the creativity of our challenge participants!

Even though most of us in the Northern Hemisphere are dealing with the summer heat, it's still all things Christmasy and wintry here at 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown!  Since it's the first Saturday of the month, this week's challenge is a sketch challenge.  I've come up with a fairly simple sketch, which you can leave as a clean and layered style card, or dress up with embellishments and patterned papers.  You may also choose to turn the sketch on its side.  I drew up the sketch as an A2 sized rectangle (4.25" x 5.5") but if you prefer to make square cards, feel welcome to manipulate it into a square.

Here's the sketch photo ~

Don't let those triangular areas intimidate you.  That's simply a rectangle, roughly the same size as the focal (top) panel, just tilted a bit.  

And now for some DT inspiration~


The rest of the design team and I are looking forward to seeing what you create!

Please make sure to follow these rules when you play along with us here at 52CCT! :)
