AiFactory #22 ~ Pick a Sketch, Any Sketch!

Happy Thursday everyone!! Hope you are having a fantastic week so far. It is cold and snowy in Ohio. I think we have another round of storms headed our way :-( I am so ready for spring!!

This week at AiFactory, we are featuring the Nautical Collection. Here is a pic of the entire Nautical Collection set available now at the AiFactory Store.

For a chance to win this awesome set, head over to the AiFactory Challenge Blog. Your challenge for this week is to create a card using a sketch from anywhere you choose. This is the perfect time to check out all the sketch challenges in blog world. Here is a fabulous site to get you started ~ The Daily Dare. As always, you are not required to use AiFactory images but if you have them we would love to see them. We also have quite a few Freebies available at the store.

Here is my card for the challenge, I used the sailboat image from the Nautical Collection set. I printed it out on white CS and used a white gel pen to add the faux stitching to the sails. The DSP is from the Paper Loft. I used Nestabilities to cut around the image and the buttons and ribbon are New Leaf from PTI. My sketch for the challenge is Laura's Sketch #44 at 2SY4. Some other challenges used on this card are:

Stampin' Sisters in Christ ~ Touch of Green
Dare U 2 DigiStamp ~ Buttons
Daring Cardmaker's ~ What's the Point?

I like the little touch of green in the sailboat, very sweet! YOu're right though, no sailing yet for us in the Midwest, it is too cold! But this makes me think of Spring. Thanks for participating in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week!
