M's Sketch Challenge


Over on Amy's blog, I learned that Savitri's daughter, M, is doing sketch challenges. I had to scoot over there and see what was what. She's adorable, and it looks like she's quite the sketch artist, too! This is my card for M's Sketch Challenge #2. When Amy stopped by, she reminded me that this also worked for the 365 Cards challenge to use paisleys, so I linked it there, too!!

I used some new to me My Mind's Eye stuff. The brads, gingham ribbon and Naturals Ivory base are SU! The grosgrain is from a ribbon swap with TexasJodyLynn. The button is vintage-love my vintage treasures!!

It was VERY hard not to put glitter on this card, but I am always low on boy cards. I figure this will work for the 6-45yo male population.

This is a great birthday card for males! Actually, I think it could work for anyone. Love the colors and the new papers are fabulous!

Dang, Carla--glitter would have looked awesome on this card! I love paisleys--my kids call them amoebas (sp?)--I have no idea why! Thanks for your sweet comments at my "place" today--I'll get that photo for you, you just wait!
