Sketch Challenge at Tuesday Throwdown

Happy Tuesday! This week at Tuesday Throwdown instead of a theme challenge we have a sketch for you to follow that I created. I've always enjoyed sketch challenges, they are a great way to start the creative process. Our sponsor this week is Lacy Sunshine and my card features the Lizabeth Wild Daisies image. The design team created some wonderful inspiration using the sketch and we would love for you to play along. You have until mid-day on Monday, Sept. 19th to link your creation. Click here for all the challenge details and design team inspiration. I hope to see your creation in the gallery.

To me, starting with a sketch helps to simplify some of the choices when making a card. I knew what size the image needed to be and the arrangement of layers. All I had to do was pick patterned paper, cut, layer, stamp and color. Pretty easy! The papers for this card are by American Crafts and the Especially for You sentiment is from Crafter's Companion. Three small heart sequins were added to the pink punched hearts to add some sparkle and the image was colored with Copic markers. That pretty much sums it up. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

This card is entered into the following challenges:
