Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #40

Geez, I almost forgot today's challenge again. I actually fell asleep and woke up freaking out that I did not post, of course I still had to make a card too. (Imagine that! I am ALWAYS last minute)

I am so glad it worked out the way it did though because as I looked for the print out of the sketch I came across these images that my friend Stephanie sent me for a mystery image challenge! The bad news is I think this was supposed to be mailed more than a week ago! YIKES, I will have to add a little something in the package for my partner since I am so late. I really hate being late too.

So on to this week's sketch. It seem to be the rage to angle you focal image so that is what we are going to try out this week. I think it was actually a really great sketch for the images I had to work with. Got lucky there!




Here is the sketch and my card. I still feel like my card needs something where the ribbon is tied but I wasn't thinking clear enough to figure out what, lol. I do like the card though, this little girl is adorable. I matched her up with the Holiday Treasures Designer paper from Stampin Up!. The base of the card is Ruby Red. She was colored in with pencils and markers. Sure hope my partner likes it --- now I have to find out who that even is and get this in the mail!







I would love to have you play along this week. It is so fun. And there really are no rules. If you make a card don't forget to leave me a comment on this post that includes a link so that I can share it with everyone else. Also if you post in an online group such as SCS please use the keywords TSSC40. Can't wait to see what you come up with for this sketch.

Hope you have a great Monday and an terrific week! I will be back around noon EST to post the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Player's cards so be sure to check back--they are always amazing! Till then -- Goodnight!
