Challenge # 9 - Sketch 2

Hi everyone and welcome to challenge 9

First we would like to say thanks to everyone who took part in last weeks challenge, wow what a fabulous response to our No Pink !! challenge which I know was a bit tricky for all you pink lovers but your cards were all fabulous and we are really enjoying visiting your blogs.
Don't forget to check back later today to see who has won the gorgeous download by Tinker + Co

So onto this weeks challenge

Challeng 9 - Sketch #2

This week we'd like you to follow this fabulous sketch.
You can rotate/flip the sketch - as long as we can still see the sketch in your creations.

As always its entirely up to you what you make - card, atc, altered art etc.. as long as it features at least on penny black image.

This week we have a fabulous stamp to give away to one lucky winner chosen at random which has been kindly donated by our sponsor :-

We hope that you will join in the fun and look forward to seeing your wonderful creations.
To be in with a chance to win these fabulous goodies just leave a comment with a link to your work and we will put your name in the draw. The winner will be announced next Saturday.
Don't forget we will be posting a new challenge every Saturday. If you don't have a blog, then email us your work and we will be happy to put it on the blog.
Here is some inspiration from our Design Team, don't forgot to check out their blogs too for more fabulous work.
