FEELING SKETCHY CHALLENGE BLOG #124

Can you believe that July has arrived?!  Feeling Sketchy Challenge Blog says that it has and has posted the challenge for the first half of the month.  Here's the sketch:


This was a tough one for me.  I just couldn't see a card in there anywhere, but, what I did see, was a beautiful layout sketch! So, I went with that.  I have taken great liberty with this sketch.  Although all the elements are present, they have been artistically rearranged just a bit!  

First, the detail shots:






And the reveal:


I hope you like my layout.  It's been a while since I have created one and actually found it quite fun.  The background paper is brand new and is from BoBunny (Garden Journal Gratitude).  The lighter cardstock (called White Smoke) is from a new company called My Colors Cardstock.  The burgundy cardstock is from my stash, as is the doily.  Both sentiments were created using a Tim Holtz Alterations die from Sizzix.

I hope you will take some time to create something for this Feeling Sketchy challenge.  Our host is Bugaboo stamps, so pay them a visit and check out their great stamps!

Thanks for both your visit and your comment!  Both inspire me to keep doing what I am doing!
