Here's the challenge:
Take an image (digi, stamp, etc.) and break it down into thirds - 1/3 no color, 1/3 patterned paper, 1/3 hand colored (markers, colored pencils, chalks, paint, etc.).
She used this adorable owl image from Sew Many Cards on the outside and found a fabulous new way to use it on the inside!
Have you had a chance to pop over to Sew Many Cards to see all the wonderful images they have to offer? If not, hop on over and check it out!!
This is so classy, Vicky, and the brads add just the right amount of shine!
You can make and add as many as you want to your card to meet the challenge. Just give it a try, and please share any tips or tricks...
I really like the effect of the stencil on this card - it makes for cool lettering!
Stencil a word or an image - whatever you have, put it to work...
We'd love to see what you can do with this one, so go make some noise :)
Such a lovely card for a wedding! You are not limited to color on this one, so get creative.
So any three of the patterns listed above will do - and if you want to attempt all five, that's ok, too :)
Is everyone wearing a little green today? Well, Kim's card is :) Last year we had an "inchies" challenge, and now we'll have a "twinchies" challenge. Your whole card can be a twinchie, or you can put one (or two or three) on your card. You'll need to decorate a 2x2 inch piece of cardstock (or chipboard or some other material) to meet the challenge.
Kim got festive with hers, check it out:
Awwww, so sweet, and I love the paw prints in the background :) Thanks for a great example, Audrey!
There are so many possibilities for this one, and I can't wait to see what you come up with!!
SO CUTE! Here's a close-up so you can see that she raised the body up off the page:
And here is Sophie's card:
There's that adorable image of the bird and tree from Stretch 'N Bubbles! And such a beautiful card overall, Vicky!! How cool is it that you actually have patterned paper with clouds on it? Very :)
You are not limited to blue sky and green grass - any outdoor landscape will do, but you must use patterned paper. Get creative and have fun with it...
The challenge is to limit the color scheme to shades of these colors. Let's see how Kim did with the challenge:
And there's that super cute rocket image from Stretch 'N Bubbles! Well done, Kim - it's a tough challenge, but the colors look great together on this card :)
Now let's see what you can do with this wacky color combo~
Audrey created this card using an image from Stretch 'N Bubbles:
Speaking of which, you can listen to it while you think about the card you want to create. You can pull lyrics from the song, or just let the words and music inspire your design. Have fun!

Today's challenge is to think "Outer Space" and how those words will inspire your card. Gloria shares an image from Stretch N Bubbles on her card, check it out:
So cute and clever, Gloria!
You can find that rocket ship image along with all the other fabulous digi images that Stretch 'N Bubbles has to offer Here.
Remember, the sponsored week officially began yesterday, so if you submit a card for yesterday's sketch challenge, that will count as an entry into the drawing.
First I would like to reintroduce the lovely and amazingly talented Amy Tsuruta who has begun her second year with us. Amy was among the original six who came on board when 365 Cards was just starting out, and she has always been wonderful about visiting participant blogs and leaving comments. We are very lucky to have you sticking around with us, Amy!Tesa Broman:
Welcome to Sophia Lindgren:
My name is Sophia Lindgren, or Kurrebo - as I like to call myself on forums and blogs.
I live in Sweden and I´m a mother of five children, love photography, absolutely can not live without music ( thank God for Spotify! ) and I'm a Pepsi Max-addict!
I have been scrapbooking for about 3.5 years now. But it wasn´t until recently that I found cardmaking.
For the last year I´ve been designing for a scrapbookstore called Handarbeta.se.... and now I´m thrilled and happy to be part of this excellent team!
I will do my best to inspire you !
Sophia really rocks the vintage look and creates such beautiful cards, I know she will inspire us here at 365 Cards!
Here's her card:
I have been making cards for about one and a half years now. I can honestly say that the daily challenges on 365 Cards have helped me improve to the point I am now at. I love to learn new techniques and meet new crafters. I don't have a "style" as I am more of a "free spirit" lol
I live in California with my wonderful husband of three years and our two spoiled furbabies, which are always helping me make my cards.
I am super excited to be on the DT for 365 Cards and look forward to seeing all the fun Pam has in store for us this year.
