New Sketch Challenge

   
The internet is a beautiful thing. I'm amazed how much is out there to inspire. The hardest part about card making, scrapbooking, or really, any paper craft is the layout, especially when you've not been in the habit of creating things. Eventually your own vision takes over and you come up with layouts on your own, but for now, wow it's making things just happen. Sketches have long been a springboard for creativity. It's like a puzzle you assemble, but you make up your own pieces. I came across Freshly Made Sketches Blog yesterday so decided to play along with this week's sketch.
The stamps are from The Stamps of Life, Branches4Flowers and the patterned paper is from Basic Gray, Green at Heart paper stack.

    1. Patti I don't know if you will see this reply...but one, thank you for the lovely comment, and two, the stones are part of a fairy house made from a milk jug which my friend made for me last week. I absolutely love it. It sits on my craft table and makes a perfect easel/photo prop for cards.
