Jay Gee’s Nook has a new challenge on its blog – Challenge #18
Love the collage of pictures but the one that stood out for me is the center picture -the plate setting. 
Wow! the green chevron with the aqua side plate on the beautifully shaped plate. 
So inspired by it, I made my card.
Cardstock: Stampers Select White, Fine Linen and Hawaiian Shores from PTI
Stamp Sets: Daily Designs and sentiment from PTI, Geo Graphic from Paper Smooches
Inks: Garden Green from SU, Archival Jet Black ink
Accessories: Spellbinders label #4 die, circle punch, rhinestones from Kaisercraft and Bookprint impression plate from PTI
To make my card, I used the latest sketch from Retro Sketches – Sketch #6 .
I flipped the sketch vertically and used the traditional card base instead of a square card base. Love this sketch. So versatile. 
If you like to play along the challenges then I have the linked both of them. Check them out. They are cool and very inspiring 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
