Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #9

Well, after a full week off my son is back in school! I wonder how it will go? He has not stayed awake a whole day since last Sunday! I pray he don't get sick again due to all the kids that don't get kept home when they are sick -- it is just never ending. Anyway, it is sketch time. I have not made anything since last sketch -- I can't believe. I kept this one a bit simple but may try another one with this sketch tomorrow. Now the ideas are beginning to flow!

The sketch looks pretty hard but it is not that bad.


Here is my card. I did mine backwards. I started with two 2 3/4 inch squares that were cut in half and attached to the top and bottom and then went from there. My middle square is 2 1/4 inch square. I so wanted to add faux stitching to the triangles but chose not to make it too detailed.





Stamps: Carte Postale
Paper: Afternoon Tea, Wild Wasabi and Groovy Guava textured card stock, base of card is whisper white.
Ink: groovy Guava
Other: Rubons -Cherished Memories, brads, paper piercer and mat pack, Nestabilities die

The finished size of the card is 9 by 4. Fast and easy!

Looks like there are only a few players this week - hmmmm, wonder if the sketch was too overwhelming or just busy? The girls that did play had mixed emotions about it, lol. They all aced the layout though so check them out.......
