Bloggers Challenge-Sketch Challenge

 For the Bloggers Challenge this week, Challenge Mom Lisa challenged to a Sketch challenge. This is what I came up with:


 I took a bit of creative liberty and stretched the circle into the square...and made the corners out of a SU punch. HERE is the picture that inspired my card from Google images. I brayered in the Zindorfian style with Orchid, Eggplant Envy and sponged on So Saffron and a dab of Mustard ink.  I was fortunate to have taken Michelle's class twice...... : )

 I have previously mentioned that I have been learning how to use SVG files on my electronic cutting machine.  I was fortunate enough to get the Make the Cut software and have been learning how to use it. 
And, McMahon Five Designs is now releasing SVG files-HERE is the link including the Palm Trees file I used on my project- and a FREEBIE floral image.  I am enjoying the challenge and feel the soft ware (Make the Cut) is like I-Tunes in that I can buy just the image I want and make it big or small.....

Check the McMahon Five BLOG to see the other DT designs with SVG's done this week. The M5D SVG files are released each week on Fridays.
