Card Sketch Jan #5

Wednesday, January 30, 2008

Happy Wednesday!!! Wow I cannot believe that January is almost over... where did the month go? I have to say that we all are ROCKING these card sketches!!! I am slightly behind in commenting but I'll catch up don't worry! Anyway here is this weeks sketch.... with the digital template available in my store. Don't forget while you're there to check out the other templates too!

I have to say that this was one of those sketches that happened 'after the fact'. Meaning I made the card first, then sketched it. Sometimes it happens that way, sometimes it's the sketch first. Mine is nice and simple with lots of (literal) white space. I love my cards like this, quick and easy too!
