365 Cards - Challenge 162


Challenge 162 is a Sketch. I love Super Sketchy Sundays! Today's sketch from Pam is simple, but you should see the variety of cards produced by the Design Team and the entrants. Fabulous!

I cheated a bit by adding some elements (kites) to the right side of the card - but it needed them! The card was too plain otherwise. I really like this one (I think it's fun) and I hope my nephew will, too. :)

We were supposed to add some glitter, but I didn't have to - this lovely kite paper by Best Creation is already glittery! I hope to get my glue n' glitter out tomorrow.

Cardstock - unknown; Design Paper - Best Creation Inc; Sentiment - CTMH; Ink - SU! Ruby Red; Ribbon - Offray; Metal Tab Holder - Dollar Store; Thread & Brads - from my stash.

I'm off to have a cuppa joe with Harvey, and then we're off to visit Judy (my sister-in-law, whom I adore!) If I have time later, I may try my hand at the Basic Grey challenge sketch. :)

Have a great day!!
