Happy Thursday everyone! Suz here along with the fun and fabulous Mandy K to share with you this week's sketch challenge and our takes on it.
First up, the sketch:
And here is Mandy's fantastic take on the design and what she had to say about it:
"The sketch Suz created for this weeks challenge is awesome! I had lots of ideas swirling in my head but I decided to keep it simple and create a fun date card to send to a friend since a "Pancake Date" with my girl Lisa is at the top of my list to make sure gets done this year. I love the cut stickers and fun paper from the Saturday Mornings collection it make it simple a quick to create this little card.
Thanks for asking me to join along with this fabulous sketch Suz!"
*ETA--Isn't that card adorable! Love the way Mandy used the pop drops to add motion and dimension to her card! Thanks for playing along with the sketch Mandy!
For this sketch, I created with the Saturday Mornings Collection and kept pretty true to the sketch, opting to use one of the four squares to house my photo and the others to use some stickers and patterned papers from the Saturday Morning collection to complete the look.
I kept the title in the approximate location as depicted in the sketch, but chose to journal on one of the Saturday Mornings Word Stickers instead. For the lower triangle image, I placed the fork and spoon Shape Stickers in a "v" pattern. Then I added some stitching and a bit of Lemon Drop SprINKlers, dropping a few slashes across the page to mimic batter droplets. ;)
This sketch would translate well to a card design too.
