CPS 100th Sketch Competition

To celebrate their 100th sketch and their 2nd birthday, Card Positioning Systems are currently holding a competition whereby entrants must create their best card using the CPS contest sketch (CPS#100). Two Grand Prize winners will be chosen by Tanya Fox, editor of CardMaker magazine, and their cards will be published in the September 2009 issue of Cardmaker magazine. How cool is that?! Even better still, each winner will also receive a copy of CardMaker’s Sketchbook- Birthday Celebration and Say it with Style both from DRG Publishers. Worth a try, hey?!

This is what the 1ooth sketch looks like;














And this is my take;


















I have used heavily distressed Coordinations cardstock as a base, cream notepaper, and pp from Bo Bunny (cream polka dot) and Basic Grey (pink). To mimic the diagonal piece running centrally across the sketch I have used a length of light brown Rusty Pickle ribbon across the card base, then layered a MME die-cut sentiment over the top. This die-cut resembles the larger of the three squares on the original sketch, and the K&Co die-cut butterflies (taken from the Amy Butler Lotus Tea Box Die-Cut Cardstock Ephemera set) resemble the remaining two. To finish, I added a bow of the same Rusty Pickle ribbon used for the background to the main die-cut.

This card also forms part of my application for the Wicked Princesses Card Kit Design Team, which I sent away about half an hour ago. I will find out next week someime if I have made the cut... fingers crossed!!!

If you too would like to celebrate with CPS, check out the contest details here. You only have until midnight Saturday 7th February to get your entry in. Goodluck!
