CCCB week 23 ~ Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone, it's me Linda and I am back as your hostess for this week. Can you believe we are already in week #23. Time flies when you are having fun.
Well, this week I have come up with a sketch. You can use any theme or any colors you would like, as long as you follow the sketch. So let's see what you gals have for us. I really love seeing how creative you all are!


CCCB week # 23 ~ Sketch Challenge

Guest Designer
We are so thrilled to introduce to you our Guest Designer this week, Karola Witczak!
Karola has such feminine touches in her creations, I simply adore her soft and romantic style. We feel extremely honored to have Karola's beautiful creation here this week!

Here's a little about Karola -
My name is Karola Witczak, totally addicted to scrapbooking! I'm from Poland, live in west side of the country with my wonderful husband Marcin and our sweet daughter Rose, who is my biggest inspiration. 
Since this year I decided to work as a freelance designer and this make me happy. Really!
It is hard to define my style, mostly my friends call it "Karola's style," and often hear that this is a soft, romantic, feminine, eclectic. I love shabby chic but with something modern. In most of my work you can usually see portraits of my daughter - I am absolutely in love with her face, and such pictures usually go to my Lo's and albums. Definitely I like all feminine, romantic themes, delicate, soft colors, I', also dependent on the sewing machine, especially when I make cards. I love to add new things to my projects, but usually I have a big inspirations from patterned papers, flowers and interesting color palettes - I believe when I have a piece of paper I create everything!
I proudly design for Polish and International companies, stores, manufacturers, like : Prima Marketing, Pink Paislee, Webster's Pages, Twiddleybitz. Melissa Frances and challenges blogs: Pencil Lines, Creative Therapy, The Color Room, and Polish scrapbooking stores and communities. I am so proud of being a part of these places, teams - this way I can realized my dreams about scrapbooking challenges, goals, products and fantastic people, which I always getting to know better.

  1. OMG! Grand Prize! Beutiful DT works!

  2. I am happpy and proud to sponsor a prize this week. The card I submit will not be for judging, but will be added to the prize package! Happy stamping!

  3. Great sketch ,Linda,love all the DT work.Thanks for a great prize,Sylvia.

  4. When you say "do not cross promote event unrelated to City Crafters" do you mean we are not to mention other challenges in which we enter our card?

  5. Oops, Marsha, I can't reach you via your blog, here's your answer if you ever come back here to read them.
    You are allowed to combine challenges and mentioned them on your blog, what we do not want to see is when we have a sponsor, e.g- a digital stamp company, and there we see lots of entries promoting their digital stamp company on our challenge site. In a case like this, it is still ok to use other digital stamp on your creation but just not a place to sell or promote them that's all. We are hoping to protect the interest of our great sponsors that's all. Thanks!

  6. Thanks Sylvia, for your sponsorship this week, and for your beautiful creation every week here at CCCB!
    I am glad that you gals have fun here at City Crafter, I love Linda's sketch too, isn't fun to play with?
