Fantabulous Cricut Challenge # 198--Sketch Challenge

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!  This week's challenge is to interpret the following sketch:

Challenge #198 Sketch Challenge
Sketch is from Card Positioning Systems 

This Weeks Sponsor

Be Wild and Free Stamp Set

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

Our wonderful sponsor for this week is Mark's Finest Paper, and they generously donated stamp sets for the DT to work with.  I had never used any MFP sets before, so I was excited to give them a try!

I got to use Be Wild and Free, an African animal-themed set.  I love African animals, and an African photo safari is on my bucket list, so this set was perfect for me!

I absolutely LOVE giraffes, so of course I picked this image to work with.  I've also lately fallen in love with chevrons, so I had to use those as well!  The chevron BG is from the Creative Cards cartridge.  I modified it a bit by taking off the aspect ratio to make it 4 x 5.25 ".  The CS is SU Cajun Craze and Basic Black, and CTMH Colonial White.

Here is a detail of my embellishment--twill tape that has been frayed.  You can't tell very well, but I first stamped an animal print pattern from this set onto the twill tape in Cajun Craze ink.  The Be Wild sentiment is also from this stamp set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.  I love the font!

I hope you enjoyed this card.  Now create one of your own using the above sketch and at least one Cricut cut and link it up to the FCCB blog--you might win this wonderful stamp set!

Thanks for dropping by today!

I love this card! The giraffes look great and I really like the look of the frayed tape. Elephants are my favorite, and I'm thinking I may need to scraplift your card but swap out the giraffes. :-)
