December Sketch Challenge

We are very excited to feature our December Sketch created by Liz Qualman. We wanted to see how clever you can all be with banners, especially since banners can be made from a variety of things, flags being only one.  Our design team created some amazing layouts for today's BLOG HOP! So hop on over to each of the team members listed below and leave a comment at each stop. You'll be entered to win a great prize package.

And don't forget to enter this month's sketch challenge and you could win a $75 prize package (see details below)!!
 Check out the adorable mitten banners on the sketch and this layout by Liz Qualman.

Liz combined Cottage Christmas papers and embellishments with the mitten Snag 'Em stamp and rub-ons from Polar Expressions to create this warming layout.  Both collection mix n' match perfectly.
The mitten stamp from Polar Expressions was perfect for fussy cutting, inking and then adding a few pop dots to make them stand out on the page.  Liz also used a white gel pen to draw the strings.
The acrylic Snowflakes included in the Cottage Christmas collection are a great embellishment for adding some flair and bling to a project.  Then just add a metal Snowflake Glitz for some extra sparkle.

Would you like to win now? Just HOP ON OVER to the following Design Team blogs to see what they did with the sketch. Remember, leave one comment on as many of the blogs (and ours) as you like and you'll have multiple chances to win a prize package of Imaginisce goodies. We'll announce the winner on DECEMBER 6th. Enjoy!
