Hello Stampers and Crafters I hope that you are doing well today.  Today I am sharing with you my card for the Paper Craft Crew Weekly design challenge.  This week we have a fun challenge for you.  For those of you that don’t know what we do, well each week we host a weekly challenge for people to take part in.  If you want to improve your design skills, or card techniques a card challenge will do just that.   I challenge you to take part in this weeks sketch challenge.  Here is the sketch for this weeks challenge.


As you can see the challenge sketch is left very open to interpretation.  You can take the sketch and make it in too any thing that you want.   That’s the great thing about card challenges.  As you can see from the paper craft crew design teams version.   Each designer took a different take on this weeks challenge.  Here’s my card  for this weeks challenge


With all the buzz over Pokemon Go it felt fitting that I created this card for this weeks challenge.  It really is a quick and easy card to recreate.   The Poke ball was created using the layering framelits dies and a 3/4″ circle punch and a 1/2″ circle punch.  I embossed the bottom of the card with the Polka dot texture impression embossing folder, to mimic the poke ball.   I separated the top and bottom of the card with black and white.   To add just a little sparkle and shine to my card I added a Silver glimmer strip down the center.  If you notice my color combination mimics that of the poke ball as

On the inside of my card I created a little Pikachu using the fox builder punch.


I also added the same elements on the inside as the outside.  The white layer and the stars.  On the side of the white layer I added the black stripe but instead of the polka dots I used the stars embossing folder.

That finishes my card for today and I hope that you pop over to the Paper craft crew page and play along with us this week.  You will will a great time taking part in this weeks sketch challenge.   You can click on the link above or by clicking on the sketch image and go to the page and check out all the great cards the design team has created for you for inspiration.
