Sketch Challenge: Layout or Card

So, here is a fun challenge for you!  You can either make a card or layout…I made one of each to give you some inspiration.  I love Page Maps Sketches so I thought it would be fun to choose one for todays challenge.

Take a look at my sketch…

I used some of my favorite stamps from MyStamp Box.  Backgrounds…my new favorite.  The “Celebrate” stamp from Bits and Pieces.  The lines from Just Add Notes are awesome for journaling lines or even to create a cross-hatched pattern.  And the little dash marks from Mini Pennants add a little extra stamping to the top left of my photo.

Here is my layout…

And here is my card.

I did the card as the sketch shows but then by accident it got turned on its side when I glued the card to the base….and I liked it even more.  Turning a sketch is not against the rules and sometimes lets you see a different perspective of your layout or card.  I really love how this turned out.

Have a great one!

    I never know if there’s a Linky somewhere (if there is, I haven’t found it! :) or if we’re just supposed to put a link here in the comments section. I love what you did this week in suggesting that a card could be made from a page layout sketch. I hadn’t tried that before but am rather pleased with the result I got after trying it. Here’s the link and the card I did is at the bottom of this posting (second card).
