I'm sooo behind with my blogposts!
But here is the new sketch for this week  at the Outlawz!!

Welcome to the Sketch Challenge! 
On behalf of Sandra, Pat, Margaret, Lisbeth, and Nini, I want to thank everyone that submitted their wonderful projects in last week's challenge!  The entries were all amazing and we loved seeing your creations! It is so fun to see what you come up with using our sketch as inspiration.
Remember you can create anything, a card, tag, scrap page, box, gift bag, just as long as the sketch is your inspiration and recognizable.

Our spotlighted card from last week's entries is from Monique Schattefor.
It is so elegant in the black and white color combo. 

For the month of February, I am so excited to tell you that The Stamping Boutique is our sponsor! The winner will receive 2 images of their choice.  However, if they win using a TSB image, the winner will then receive 3 images of their choice.

Here is our sketch for this week!
Sketches are made with digital kits from Touched by a butterfly.

Now for the inspiration cards from our Design Team.

Oh, these little Love Birds are so sweet. This would make a great anniversary card as well as any occasion.Great color combination. And great coloring on the love birds.

I used Uncommon Friendship for my card. I love this image!

Margaret made a whimsical card with Puppy Surprise. The paw prints are just perfect for the corner accents. I love the dotted circle background paper, too!

Lisbeth also used Puppy Surprise. So cute and sweet! The box seems to be just glowing!

Puppy Surprise was very popular this week with our designers. Nini has made a super cute card with this fun image. I love the 'picture perfect" theme.

Sandra has made a wonderfully colorful card using Owl Family!! Aren't those owls just so adorable!! And the die cuts are wonderful, too.

Now it is your turn! Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch, as long as we can see that the sketch was your inspiration.
