Nov Sketch Dare Challenge by Tonya Gibbs

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a great weekend. Today I wanted to share with you my take on this Month's Sketch and Dare Challenge. 

Here is this month's sketch

This month's DARE is to use a Grateful/Thankful theme.

TO ENTER the Die~Namites Dies November Sketch Challenge YOU MUST:
  1. Use at least one Die~Namites Die in your creation.
  2. Use the SKETCH! It can be interpreted (loosely or exactly) as a card, layout or altered piece!
  3. Incorporate the DARE into your creation.
  4. Mention the Die~Namites Die you used in your blog post.
  5. Link back to the Die~Namites Dies Blog.
  6. You have until the last day of the month to post your creation on your blog and link up to this post.  **PLEASE add a link to your direct post, not your entire blog.**
Each participant will receive one entry into our random drawing
for each entry into the challenge.

 A random winner will be chosen from eligible participants for a
$25 Gift Certificate to Die~Namites Dies.


For my card today I decided to use these two dies: 

 Flower Scroll

In the sketch part the patterned paper is cut at an angle on the left side.  I decided to cut the entire front of the card, to reveal the patterned paper on the inside of the card. This gives my card an interesting cover.  After I did this, I thought this design would make the perfect gift card holder for the holidays (something to think about). 

The minute I saw the Holiday Wreath die I fell in love. It reminds me of a doily, so I decided to use it in place of the doily in the sketch. I also decided to have the flower
layer overlap the opening on the card. 

I have prepared a process video for you.

Here is my final card.

I hope you decided to play along with us.  You have until the end of the month to enter.
Make sure you upload your blog link on the original post.

Thanks for stopping in today, 

Tonya Gibbs
