Whimsical Wednesdays: The Diedrich Dare!

Wednesday, September 9, 2009

Good morning and welcome to the first ever Whimsical Wednesday: The Diedrich Dare!

If you remember, a couple of months back, the Twinkling Tuesday girls decided to take the summer off. Well, we're back! It's the same group of talented girls and the same challenging sketches from the Diedrich kids, but we have a new name and a new blog! And to kick of this week, we have an awesome sponsor!!

This week's sketch is a nice symmetrical one! My favorite! LOL I *love* the fact that Jessica's kids draw these sketches for us to play with. They're so unlike other sketches out there and they're not always easy, but remember, sketches a just guides and you can tweak it here and there to make it work for you.

To kick off this week's Diedrich Dare, I decided it would be very fitting to use a Greeting Farm image. Bree is just adorable! I love her little braids and that satchel! I think I omitted one of the layers and the dots embellishments along the bottom and top from my card, but it still keeps the majority of the sketch intact.

If you'd like to play along this week, just create a card using the sketch, upload it either to your blog, SCS or PCP and leave a link to it on this week's WWDD blog post. If you upload it to SCS or PCP, remember to use the keyword DDSC1 so the Diedrich Dare girls can find your cards and leave you some love! :) The best part is one lucky (and random) participant will win the awesome Butterfly Wishes set just by playing along! :) Woohooo!!
Need some more inspiration?! Check out what the other Diedrich Daredevils have created with the sketch!
