What If Wednesday Sketch Challenge


It's time for another What If Wednesday sketch challenge from Repeat Impressions!  Submissions to this J3010 Sketch Challenge will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. EST on July 13th. All participants are automatically entered into a random drawing for a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions, so what have you got to lose?

There is a very nice fellow who works for one of my long time clients and he is retiring this week, so I made this retirement card using the sketch and this adorable kitty from Repeat Impressions (Forty Winks # 2606). I don't know this gentleman very well from a personal standpoint, but I do know that he is a fellow cat lover, so this image seemed appropriate. 

I paired the image with BasicGrey's Max and Whiskers papers, some kitty-themed twill and a brad from Around the Block that says Cat Nap in the upper left corner.  The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions' Quartet Complements line.

For the inside of the card and the envelope liner, I used some more of the Max and Whiskers paper.  The sentiment is from Stampabilities.

Please play along with us and create a card using this week's sketch!  If you have Repeat Impressions stamps, we'd love for you to use them, but it's not required.  Leave a link to your project over on today's post at The House That Stamps Built, and while you're there, be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has done using the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by!
