WWC108 - Gail's Sketch Challenge

Woo Hoo!  We have a sketch challenge this week!  Gail Allen has chosen a fun sketch and invites you all to create a card and link up.  Remember, sketch challenges have a lot of options as long as it is clear that the sketch was used.  Turn it on its side.  Flip it upside down.  It's your choice.


Ready to create and link-up?  Need a bit more inspiration?  Just check out the terrific ways in which the sketch inspired the Watercooler Artists this week.  As usual, if you click on the name under each card, you can visit the blog post to see details on how the card was created.  We begin with Gail's lovely card, using the Delicate Details lace stamps from our current Sale-a-bration.
