Seize the Sketch #12!


I'm still pinching myself - this is my first post as a design team member for Seize the Sketch!  This sketch was designed by Stacey, and wait until you see how the team interpreted it - absolutely gorgeous, and it's got me bowing down & saying a la Wayne & Garth, "I'm not worthy!"



Supplies: all papers from Basic Grey; sentiment from PTI; Versamark & black detail EP; Martha Stewart clay kit; black Sharpie for borders


I was pleasantly surprised that I managed to combine the right mix of colours in the clay to match the papers - it's about half white, a quarter brown, and a quarter red. The sentiment is just a beautiful thing to say to someone just because - and inspired by Amy Tsuruta I'm trying to send more happy mail this year! 

Here's the fabulous sketch:


Here is how to play along with us:
1. Create a card based on the sketch provided.
2. Link up your card to the linky...make sure you link up your post with the card in it and not your whole blog.
3. Comment on the other cards in the gallery...at least 5!
4. Combine us with as many other challenges as you would like...EXCEPT other sketches...because that wouldn't work! LOL!!!
5. Have fun!

Don't forget to stop by & see all the fabulous interpretations of the sketch from the design team!
