MPC Sketch challenge

Today is a sketch challenge over on Mountain Plains Crafters. We would love to have you play along with us. There is a prize for one lucky player who joins our sketch challenge. Our sponsor is Fancy Pants Designs. The theme we used was Nautical.

What I liked best and what gave me the biggest struggle on my card was my little life preserver. I made several that ended up in the trash. I took cardstock. I cut a circle and punched another circle inside to make a ring. I did this with 4 pieces of cardstock I then wrapped ribbon around the rings. I glued red ribbons and then twine around the edges, leaving big loops of twine.


  1. And it came out you do it all the time! I love everything about this creation. Putting the cheesecloth over the star dp was a fabulous idea and I am loving the could sell those preservers!

  2. This is fabulous MariLynn - love that life preserver, and the cheesecloth behind the plain panel.

  3. Oh wow! You did such an awesome job on the life preserver!!! I love the cheese cloth and the light house is beautiful! Fabulous card!
