Kazan's Sketch 20

I had so much fun seeing all your beautiful love cards last week and thank you all for being such good sports and showing us the Eye Candy in your life. Having a bit of fun and laughter is so much part of what we do. Enjoying being creative and spending time with good company is always enjoyable on any given day. As we bid farewell to Valentines Day for another year and slowly welcome in Easter celebrations and Spring I can feel my mood change towards lighter & softer colors. All my cards seem to have the same soft hues and I think it is totally seasonal ;) and our fantastic Spring Design Team have given us more uber inspiration from their interpretations of this weeks sketch:






Bonus Sketch & Card
Julie Campbell

This week we kick off the very popular Bonus Sketch feature by our Design Team. Julie is our first Spring Designer to bring you her own sketch and her ultra cute interpretation thereof:

We would love to see your interpretation of Julie's sketch however, you only need to make a card based on Kazan's Sketch to be eligable to win this weeks prize.

Sakura of America

Of all the products that Sakura of America has to offer I am a personal fan of their Gelly Roll Pens. They do write ulta "ice cream smooth" and the creamy ink and incredible array of colors provide plenty of favorite "flavors" for letting your creativity flow onto paper. For mega inspiration from fantastic artists visit the Artist Showcase on the Sakura of America website:

Sakura of America Artist Showcase Page

One lucky card maker will win this set of Gelly Roll pens for Card of the Week. Here is what you need to do to enter.

• Please provide a link to your card by posting it on this thread
• Deadline for all entries: Saturday February 21st at Midnight (US Mountain time)
• Your card should be based off the sketch provided and can be of any theme
• The winning card will be announced as the Card of the Week on Sunday, February 22nd here at 2 Sketches 4 You.

Let the creativity begin
