Kazan's Sketch 23

I picked up the latest copy of Cards Magazine and Paper Crafts and once again I was so inspired by all the amazing talent out there. It is also a pleasure to see the 2 Sketches 4 You Designers, past and present, represented in these major publications. Our Design Team has always set a high standard for card makers out there and we are very proud of that. It is almost that time again for Laura and I to select the next 6 Designers to represent us over the Summer so keep up the gorgeous work - we will be giving each one of you an opportunity to apply in just a few weeks...

For now though we still get to savor our Spring Design Teams interpretation of this weeks sketch.







Bonus Sketch & Card
Berdien Weideveld

This week the gorgeous Bonus Sketch and Sample card is brought to you by the very talented Berdien. We love working with Berdien, whose style is not only gorgeous but so inspirational for all levels of cardmakers. Berdien's blog is post after post of pure artistic magic. You don't have to read dutch to admire the amazing work in her posts. Be sure to stop by and pay her a visit at: Scraps from Bemmel

We would love to see your interpretation of Berdien's sketch however, you are only required to make a card based on Kazan's sketch 23 to be eligible to win the prize for this week.

Sakura of America

I am sure you all are aware that we are huge fans of Sakura of America's products. As cardmakers and stampers you will fall in love with their fantastic pens that come in a wonderful assortment of colors and styles including the Gelly Roll, Glaze and my personal favorite, Souffle! For our North American friends be sure to click on this link to find a store near you that sells Sakura products:

Sakura Store Locator

Luckily one cardmaker will not have to drive anywhere to get their very own set of Sakura "Ice Cream Smooth" Gelly Roll Metallic Pens. Sakura is sponsoring this set to the winner of Card of the Week.

How to Enter:

• Please provide a link to your card by posting it on this thread
• Deadline for all entries: Saturday April 4th 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, April 5th here at 2 Sketches 4 You.
• International Cardmakers are welcome to enter

We are super excited to see your interpretation of the sketch(es) this week.
Kazan & your Gorgeous Design Team

I would like to take this opportunity to wish Christine (Creative Journey) a very Happy Birthday. Christine is a much loved Designer from our 2008 Fall Design Team and celebrated her Birthday yesterday. We hope your day was filled with love and happiness.
Hugs from all of us here at 2S4Y
