A new round of challenges at Your Next Stamp!

Happy Friday, everybody! It’s been a fast but crazy week here, and I hope you’re ready for a new Fun Friday challenge at Your Next Stamp!
We’re mixing things up and have re-launched the YNS Challenge blog, and are starting things off with a new type of challenge! 
Each month, we’ll provide a sketch and an inspiration photo. You choose one (or both) on which to base your entry…the challenge will run for the entire month, and different DT members will be sharing how they’re inspired by the challenge each Friday!
I chose both the sketch AND the inspiration photo for my card. I pulled the strawberries, the polka dots, and the colors from the photo, and I’m featuring Darling Diva “Summer” on my card:
YNS Supplies: image stamp ( Darling Diva “Summer”), sentiment stamp (“Ellie Loves Lattes”), banner stamp (“Skinny Alpha Font Set”); Other supplies: designer paper (“Nook & Pantry” 6×6 pad – RETIRED – Basic Grey), assorted Copic markers, sewing machine, paper flower, button, twine, ink (Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Gumball Green).
Here are the inspiration photo and sketch (you can click on each picture to see a larger version):
So, here’s the scoop on how the new challenge works:
  • On the first Friday of each month, we’ll post a new challenge for you to follow, and the chance to win YOUR NEXT STAMP prizes and GUEST DESIGNER spots here at YNS!
  • Our SKETCH and PHOTO INSPIRATION challenge runs for an entire month, so for added inspiration, we will be adding new cards & creations from the YNS Design Team EVERY Friday so be sure to stop by every week and join in the FUN!
  • We would love to see you create a card using a YOUR NEXT STAMP stamp, but we also welcome projects made with other stamps. If you do use a YOUR NEXT STAMP stamp or die, your project just might be selected as our TOP PICK!
