Card Sketch March #1

Wednesday, March 5, 2008

I think this one might go in my favorites file. One of those sketches that has lots of potential and many, many, ways to use it! As usual the free digital template is available for a short time in my digital store, so snag it while you can!

This weeks card sketch is one I thought I'd struggle with, but thankfully I was wrong. Mine came together pretty fast using leftovers from the Scrapbook Sussies March kit. Totally loving this paper from Best Creations, such soft colors, great geometric patterns and a little touch of glitter! Just awesome papers!
