It’s time for November’s Rainy Day Sketch Challenge!  Here is this month’s sketch.  It was inspired by this darling card over at Diane Zachman’s blog, “Paper Cookies.”

I made a couple of cards, too, to show the sketch in action.  lol

The first card shows the sketch rotated 180 degrees.

Love CAS designs, and I love the simplicity of this heart and sentiment with it’s sweet little button.

The second card shows the sketch with an orientation like the drawing.

I also love the vintage look with lace and pearls and a crocheted doily flower.  A little flourish peeks out from behind the designer papers.

To make the pennant shaped panel, I cut three coordinating pieces of designer paper and lined them up side by side with the pattern side face down.  The center of the middle strip was marked.  Taking a square piece of cardstock, I placed it at the bottom of the strips with one of the corner points placed on the center mark high enough that the outside bottom corners of the strips were also covered by the square.

I marked the “V” and cut.

The blog candy this month is a brand new 6×6 pad of Basic Grey’s “Lucille” designer paper.  It is one of the most beautiful selection of papers I have ever seen!  All of the designer paper used on both of my cards are from this collection.  It will be sent to a randomly drawn winner from those who play along in the challenge.

To play just leave a link to your creation in the comments section.  A winner will be drawn on December 1st giving you a little over 2 weeks to participate in the challenge.  Oh and please make sure that the link you leave goes to the specific card you are entering and not to your blog or gallery in general.  Hope you can find some time to play!

Happy Crafting!
