It's a Sunday.....and "every other" Catch the Bug hosts a
Stella Says Sketch Challenge!
I love sketches! They make putting together a card much quicker for me, as I probably spend most of my time deciding on a sketch for my images! :0) The sketch today is actually one that I had put together for this challenge. :0) "Go, me!", right?! lol!

I had originally come up with this sketch when I created a birthday card, which you can see here. I actually took a few liberties today........I kept the bow off this card, and there are a few other small variances. I had to consider image size, embellish size, etc.....but that's okay! :0) We want you to be inspired by a sketch and make it your own, so if you have to flip it, mirror it, or make small changes to it - no problem-o! Just make sure you post your finished card with Mr. Linky when you're done creating so you don't miss the chance to win some Bugaboo images! You can win two, four or even seven! :0)

This card uses Scarlette Cafe by Bugaboo Stamps. I created the wine bottle svg (a freebie for you!) and hand wrote the "Cheers to You" label as a sentiment. This card actually has a destination.......one of my bff's from waaaaay back (I'm talking jr high) is a lawyer, and recently was featured in a Statewide Publication as "An Up and Coming"! Woohooo! She is awesome! :0)
Anyhow, I did some sponging around my image to lessen the stark white paper, and try to match it better to my bg papers, which are a new purchase for me (aren't they pretty?! I just love the colors!).
My ribbon was white, too, and I ran my sponge dauber over it to try to muddy it up a bit, too. It did okay, but I think maybe a little more would have been better. The ribbon is a silk, so it just wasn't holding the ink very well.
That's it from me today! Thanks for stopping by.........please stay a while longer, and browse! :0) If you like what I do, why not consider following me? ========== > >
