Sketch Layout Challenge!

I am part of a small family of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. I have some wonderful uplines & downlines. Recently we decided to start doing some challenges in our group for some fun, and to help stretch the imagination and creativity a little. I was the first person to select a Sketch Challenge for the group and here it is. 

Only a couple of members of our little group had time to put together a design, and I'd love to share them with you because I love them all! 

This first design was done by Debbie Williams (you can find her website here). She made her design using MDS and I absolutely love it. 

This design was created by the lovely Ingrid of Inky Ingrid (you can find her page here). I love the colour combo and that she has used some of the new burlap ribbon which I absolutely worship.

This card was designed by the talented Kristy Coromandel (her page can be found here). I love gold so much right now, so naturally I'm loving this card design!

This beautiful fresh design was made by the talented Rochelle of Lille Parti (her page can be found here). I really love the simplistic clean layout & colours she has chosen for her design.

I had so much trouble with my design and I am still not 100% happy with it but I still like it! Here is what I used to make it.
