Freshly Made Sketches #1

Hello and welcome to Freshly Made Sketches! Today is our very first challenge and we are so excited to begin this fun journey together! The main idea behind this challenge blog is to use the sketch provided and to create a "clean" card. You might wonder what we mean by clean? We are looking for clean-lined creations but unlike Clean and Simple challenges, we encourage lots of detail and embellishments as long as they maintain a "clean" look to your card.




 
The "Clean Team" has come up with some "Freshly Made" designs to get you in the spirit! We are so excited to visit your blog and to see what YOU create with our sketch!  We would also like to welcome Featured Designer Jaydee.  Jaydee is the Queen of Clean and she has an awesome style that you will love!!!  She is our first Featured Designer and we are excited to have her on board! Welcome Jaydee!  To visit Jaydee's blog, be sure to click her name under her card sample!


We have a few simple rules to keep things fun and fair for all of our players:
  1. Please use any stampin' product you would like to use, but please avoid putting sales pitches into your post.
  2. Feel free to combine our sketch with up to 3 other challenges.
  3. Please add a DIRECT link to your blog when adding your card to the linky below.
  4. Please include our sketch and a link back to Freshly Made Sketches on your post.
  5. Have fun!
This challenge will end on Monday, September 12th at Midnight (PST). On Tuesday, September 13th, we will be announcing the winner of this week's sketch challenge who will known as the "Queen of Clean" and each Design Team Member will choose one "Princess".





Let's get clean!!!

  10. Oh how exciting! I'm so glad I ran across a link to this site and I love the idea of starting from the beginning of a challenge site and I've never been able to do that. I tend to distress everything so, this will be a true challenge for me but I welcome it. Who knows...I might get more cards done.
