Hello and welcome to the Technique JunkiesTechnique By Design Challenge Blog Hop.

f you didn't arrive here from the Technique Junkie blog, you don't want to miss what our whole DT has in store for you! To make sure you miss none of the fun, you'll want to start at the very beginning! If you have arrived from SHELLY'S Blog, you are in the right place! :)

Technique Junkie is offering you a Sketch Challenge with a twist and we would LOVE for you to participate! All of the details and the sketch are on the Technique Junkie April-May Newsletter

You can have an opportunity to win a variety of products from Technique Junkie's FABULOUS Vendors!

Here is how:

1. Follow the sketch...The sketch uses Six 1-1/2" pieces; three sets of two different technique or cardstock pieces. This is a great way to incorporate technique backgrounds into your cards. Just make sure the colors coordinate and you can mix and match different techniques on your card with a stunning effect! If you make extra backgrounds when trying out the techniques, you will love being able to use them here. Note: in order to qualify for the drawing, at least two different TJ techniques must be used on the card, and one of those two techniques must be used on the squares.
