Take Your Pick

Hi peeps and hope you are all OK and that you are having a nice week so far.

A huge thank you to everybody who joined in last week – we loved your girlie cards and projects : )

So who was our winner then ?

Woohooo
Annie's Style this week it’s you chick :)

Well done to you and if you e-mail me, I’ll pass your details on to Mary and hugest of thanks to The Ribbon Girl   for sponsoring us xxx


And check out what Annie did peeps …

…. I really like the black, red and white – one of my fave colour combis.


OK, onto this week and now for something a little bit different.

From now on, the last challenge of the month is going to be a take your pick sort of challenge.
We are still going to have a new sketch for you as we know that some of you like working with them, and you can still have a sketchie free for all and use ANY PTW SKETCH as we’ve always done.

But for those who don't, there’s something to play along with as well
.

Each month, as well as the sketch, we will have a colour theme, a technique theme and a product theme.
You can choose any one or you can combine two or more
.


So here is your take your pick list for November

Colour theme - blues and greens excluding skin and hair tones

Technique theme - masking, so using 2 or more stamps together

Product theme - ribbon and / or lace

And here is your sketch for November -

...  sketch #96

But don’t forget as always,  if you would prefer to use another sketch, then please feel free to use any Papertake Weekly sketch you fancy,
and just add the number of the sketch you’ve chosen when you post the link back to us :)

To make life a bit easier, we now have a sketches page at the top here so there are a fair old few to choose from.
Hopefully this will save you having to go back through the archives to find one that you like :)

As always, please feel free to resize, flip and rotate the elements - as long as you can still see the sketch, it’s completely fine so fill yer boots!!!

Phew, I hope that this all makes sense but please feel free to email me if you have any queries or questions.


As it’s the last challenge of the month, we are sponsored by those fabulous people across the pond.

Yes it’s the one and only and utterly fab
