• Use Cornish Heritage Farms Backgrounders
• Upload your project to the Cornish Heritage Farms Gallery using the appropriate keyword
• Please post a link to your design back in the CHF forum thread for that day
You may double up your challenges but please submit your design to only ONE of the challenges to keep the chances fair for everyone. One project = one chance to win
• You can create as many designs as you wish for each challenge

So, to highlight the first challenge for Mona's sketch, I created this card.

Framed Love:
My inspiration for this card was a wide grosgrain ribbon I'd been hoarding. Ironically enough, the ribbon didn't make it on this project. Funny how that happens sometimes. LOL! I did use it on my Sunday card, though. The brown cardstock is stitched to hold the pleats.
I hope you'll join us at for the challenges!
