September Sketch Challenge!~ and a SWAP!

Welcome to the month of September and our NEW Sketch Challenge! We had some amazing entries last month~ thank-you if you played along! Be on the lookout for our prize winner and features on Thursday the 5th :)

To kick off our new month and new sketch challenge, we also have a SWAP to reveal! We have teamed up with 7 Dots Studio of Poland and all month long, our design team will be using 7 Dots Studio products on their projects! Additionally, the 7 Dots Studio team will be using Blue Fern Studios products- so make sure you stop by their blog this month too and see how their talented team is putting our pieces to work! 


This month we have another beautiful sketch created by the very talented Michele Singh:

This sketch- as always- could easily be rotated or mirrored. We would love to see your take on it! 

Here are a few samples from the design team:

So many different ways to do this one- and don't you worry if you don't have the chipboard pieces featured in the sketch- feel free to interpret it as you like with whatever you have :)
As always, we've got a great grab bag of chipboard for one randomly chosen participant:

In addition to our prize winner, we will also select a Top 3 to feature in our winner post!
We have just a few simple rules to follow if you would like to participate in our sketch challenge:
1.) Feel free to interpret the sketch as you please by means of taking it as-is or flipping/turning/mirroring it to suit your needs! **Please note that you can do whatever type of project you please- a layout, card, tag, canvas, altered item- whatever suits your mood and style! We would love to see the different ways our sketch can be used.**

2.) You must use at least one piece of Blue Fern Studios chipboard- but you do not need to use the pieces featured in the sketch! You can find the store nearest you HERE. {Do not use any other brand of chipboard on your project please!}
** We had a couple entries last month who did not use chipboard, so please note this step as you will be disqualified from the prize drawing and features**

3.) Upload your project using the Inlinkz tool below by midnight EST on September 30th, 2013.
We look forward to your entries!
