Blogger's Challenge - Sketch

This week was a fun sketch! That simply means that you are given a "sketch" of a layout of a card and you create it according the sketch. I personally love these challenges because it kind of gives you a starting place, especially if you're lacking in your mojo! LOL! Here's the sketch:

And here's my card that I made:



I used my new favorite product from our new catalog - the Sunny Day Simply Scrappin' Kit. I absolutely love the colors, the images and the papers in this kit. You simply HAVE to have it!! I started out with a white base, and added the top background layer, which is a paper from the kit. Then I decided to add the Big Shot Die "Swirly" in a couple of different colors. After I cut them out in the Pumpkin and the Pink Passion, I decided to try to piece the different colors together for the next layer! It turned out really cute, I thought! Then I added another little piece of the Pink Swirly and trimmed it off at both ends after finding the perfect place for it on the card. The flower images and the cute little birdie tag on the top are some of the cardstock stickers from the kit. The sentiment is from the Best Wishes and More set. I sponged a little of the turquoise chalk around the tag to add a little shading. I was pretty darn pleased with how it turned out!

Can't believe that summer is coming to an end already. Time for school shopping, school open houses, locker check outs, schedule pick ups, and more. Oh my.......here we go again!
