Card Sketch Sept #2

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

Yep the card sketches are back! Yay! I missed them for sure, did you all miss them? I love doing the card sketches so I don't think they'll be going anywhere anytime soon! As you can see from the sketch below, I added a suggestion for the patterned paper this time, but it's entirely up to you where you place it :) Sketches are just a jumping point for creativity remember! The digital template is available free in my store for a limited time, snag it while you can!


I had a scrap of some patterned paper to use up which was just perfect for this sketch. Pulling colors from the patterned paper for the cardstock, ribbon and buttons really pulls this card together. The ribbon looks a little funky in the pic but it's just a grosgrain ribbon with yellow stitching, not sure why it looks a bit odd in the photo?
