Saturday Sketch Time!

Ready for our new sketch?
Here's what Lauren gave us to play with this week...Here's what I came up with....
I ended up putting the sentiment up on the top panel because my ginormous ribbon would have made it tough to see. This was a really fun layout to work with - thanks Lauren!

For this one, I left the base white and made use of some beautiful scraps I found in one of my drawers. The patterned paper is a double sided sheet from the "Cousins" line by My Mind's Eye. To finish it off, I pierced with my favorite pokey tool and then added some cute owls and a sentiment from the U R A Hoot collection by Kim Hughes.

Here's my Christmas version of the same sketch...
For this one, I used Close to Cocoa and matched it up with two different patterns by BasicGrey. For the three small square elements on the sketch, I used one of the images from SU's "Spotlight on Christmas". I stamped them onto the patterned paper with Chocolate Chip ink, cut them out and adhered with dimensionals.

To give it a little extra sparkle, I added some Diamond Stickles to random polka dots on the patterned paper and the snowflake from the stamped image.

Can't wait to see what you guys do with the sketch!
