Caardvarks's time for a sketch challenge

Oh my......Caardvark challenges just keep getting better and better!! I had a super blast creating these cards. Our sponsor for this challenge is Shortcuts. I enjoyed using the clear acetate and frosted vellum sheets they generously sent us. I will definitely be making more!! :)

If you enjoy sketches, you might want to join us at Caardvarks. The first card below was created based on the sketch for the current Caardvarks challenge. It's a terrific sketch by Heidi Van Lar.
There is also a Gift Certificate from Shortcuts up for can't win if you don't play!! ;)

If you've never made a clear or frosted vellum card......I urge you to try it!! I was impressed with the many ways you can use it!
