Dreaming of Sketches

I love sketch challenges. Well actually, I just love challenges period! I made this quick card using the sketch that Joslyn posted this week over at Lizzie Anne Land. Her take on the sketch is here, and it is darling!

Josyln actually said the card should be 5"x5" and I enlarged mine to 5.5"x5.5". No particular reason why, I just felt like it! I did manage to meet the "extra twist" on the challenge, which was to have a white background, so yay me!

I used the Lizzie Anne Designs set Dreaming of Dots (it's retired and unavailable now), which I love. I'm starting on my New Year's resolution to use neglected stamp sets early! The flourishes are from LAD's Fanciful Flourishes set.

If you have time to play along with this week's sketch, I'd love to see it! Post a link here or on the thread over at Lizzie Anne Land!

Materials:
  • Cardstock/Paper: Prismatics White, Basic Grey dp
  • Stamps:LAD Dreaming of Dots, Fanciful Flourishes
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Soft Sky, Sage Shaow
  • Tools: cuttlebug, nesties, slot punch, black fine tip sharpie
  • Accessories: ribbon
