Inspired Crafters Sketch Challenge #10 for October

Hello Friends,

Welcome to Inspired Crafters. It is time for our Friday sketch Challenge for the Month of October. You have until November 3rd to submit your entry for this Challenge. You can combine this with any other challenge, but please do mention our name and give credit to our sketch.

Here is the sketch,

We are very excited to have Sankari Wegman as our Guest Designer for this sketch.

Here is our mini Interview with Sankari,

IC Blog: Something about yourself:
Sankari: Hi Everyone, My name is Sankari Wegman and I am so excited and honored to be part of the sketch challenge today! I am totally and unabashedly addicted to all things paper crafting related :) I started stamping and blogging almost 2 years ago and feel so blessed to have met such incredible bloggers and artists around the world who inspire me everyday with their creativity. I live in the midwest with my DH and two children and when I am not in the craftroom, currently I am trying to finish my PhD and also I teach a couple of courses at the University.

IC Blog: What is your must have stamping tool and accessory?
Sankari: My must have stamping tool is a corner chomper (love that it chomps through sheets of cardstock and chipboard all at once) and my must have stamping accessory are my liquid pearls (I am slightly addicted to them ;)

IC Blog: Any current trends that are inspiring to you
Sankari: One trend that is inspiring me is the pennant craze - I love cutting things out and so its fun to cut out little pennants and attach them to your card - it creates an instant celebratory tone to your card :) 

IC Blog: What patterned papers are you creating with lately
Sankari: I am a huge fan of Cosmo Cricket and just recently, I got hooked onto Echo Park paper - how cute are those designs!?! I also love Bo Bunny and My Mind's Eye and well lets face it - I will never say no to any paper - so pretty much everything!

IC Blog: What tips can you share with our blog readers
Sankari: I love using sketches and so one thing that I do is to keep a little notebook by my craft area where I can quickly draw a sketch that inspires me when I am surfing blogland. I also write the URL by the sketch so that in the future I can refer back to it.  Sometimes when I feel stuck, I will pull out the sketchbook and suddenly I might have an idea. And if you write the URL, then you always know where you got that sketch from and you won't have to surf around looking for it :) I know I will be keeping this gorgeous sketch in my notebook for the future! Thanks so much for letting me play along today!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)

And without further ado, here is her gorgeous card!!!
