March Sketch Challenge & First Look at Courtship Lane Collection

Wow, March is here, so that means spring can't be far away!  And what better way to start the month than with a brand new sketch challenge, and a look at our upcoming collection, Courtship Lane, which will be coming very soon. To give you a better look at this gorgeous paper, each example below from our Creative Team, has been created using Courtship Lane.

Our sketch designer, Michele Singh, has a beautiful sketch for you this month.  There are so many ways to interpret this sketch, and we can't wait to see how you apply your style to it.

To give you a head-start, we have some examples from our Creative Team using the Courtship Lane collection.

 Now it's your turn to join us.  We would love for you to use the March Sketch as inspiration for your project.   We will have a prize for one lucky winner (from a random draw), and will feature a few projects from YOU at the end of the month!

We ask that you follow these guidelines:

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, but please make sure your layout resembles the sketch.

2). Please note that you can do whatever type of project you please - a layout, card, 
  canvas, altered item- whatever suits your mood and style! 
We would love to see the different ways our sketch can be used.

3.) You must use at least one piece of Blue Fern Studios chipboard OR use Blue Fern Studios paper on your project. Please note that you do not need to use the pieces featured in the sketch
- use whatever suits your fancy! You can find the store nearest you HERE.
 {Do not use any other brand of chipboard on your project, please!}

4.) Upload your project using the Inlinkz tool below by midnight EST on March 31, 2016.
