Card Sketch February #2

Wednesday, February 13, 2008

Back from CHA and itching to get creating! Though I have to organize and tidy up in here first! Need to find room for the CHA stash! Anyway more on CHA later, here is this weeks card sketch! The hearts are just a suggestion for embellishments, I used them as it's almost Valentines day and I wanted to be seasonal! As always the digital template freebie is available in my store, along with lots of other templates available to purchase!

My take on the sketch. Strangely enough I struggled a little with this one. Not 100% sure why. Whether it was the run up to CHA and the prep for that, or just needing a little creative push, but I got it done, and I'm happy with it!
