April 2013 Sketch Challenges

Welcome to the April 2013 challenge post! It's your resident challenge coordinator again and I'm here to share the sketches for this month. 

I created a card sketch with a repeating embellishment down the center. You could use flowers, hearts, stars, or anything really! I can't wait to see what you all come up with.

The designers made some amazing examples! Check out the variety of ways they used the vibrant April 2013 kit.

Next, we have the layout sketch. Holly was busy this month so I stepped up to the plate! I included room for one photo and lots of embellishments.

The designers had a blast using April 2013 Sampler kit to make their layouts. Scroll down to see what they created!
