Hello everyone! Suz here along with Emily to share today's #oasketchday challenge, along with our takes on the design.
First up, the sketch:
Here's Emily's adorable design and what she had to say about it:
"I really liked Suz's sketch, and I thought it would work perfectly for a card. I used the the adorable new Summertime line to create a quick little card. I kept my card pretty true to the sketch. I used the Swimming Pool paper as my background and included two overlapping rectangles of the Puffy Clouds and Sunshine patterned papers. I also loved the cute little sun sticker and layered it with one of the Summertime Tin Pins. Finally, I used some labels to highlight my sentiments. A big thanks to Suz for the fun sketch!"

Thanks so much Emily for playing along and sharing your time and talents here! :)
And here is my design. Clean + Simple. My traditional style for cards.
As you can see, I didn't strictly follow the sketch but you can see elements I extrapolated from it like the placement of the title and the stacked rectangles. I flipped the "embellishments" in the design and omitted a few as well. Oftentimes, one needs to do that when creating with cards, due to the smaller scale of the creation.
