World Card Making Day & A Sketch Challenge & A GIVEAWAY {Authentique Paper}

***Looking for my Orange Blog Hop {Fiskateer} post? Look HERE***

{As seen today on the Authentique Paper blog}



Authentique Paper is back with another sketch challenge - and here's the card I created using the card sketch:


I love Authentique Paper's new Free Bird Series papers (6x6 textured papers...sold individually!), and I used papers from the Fair Weather Series on this card.
{The colors in this series are beautiful!}


Be sure to head on over to the blog to see the coordinating layout sketch and card sketch and get yourself in on the challenge!



Oh, and happy World Card Making Day!!!



Since it's World Card Making Day, I figured I'd better make a card just for the occasion, so I created this one:


I started out by using the Authentique Paper sketch to create this card...but, as you may be able to see, I wandered quite a bit.



And while we're here celebrating World Card Making Day...I guess a giveaway is in order!


The prize package includes a Vintage Wallpaper background stamp from Market Street Stamps, an Ultimate Color Sampler Pack from The Twinery, and a Peacock Corner Lever Punch from Fiskars.
