Sketch Plus Three Challenge

Here I am with another challenge card for my friend, Joanne. Based on the limited nature of my blog posts since our last move (now eleven months ago!!), it looks like it takes Joanne issuing a challenge to light a fire under my butt and get me posting! Where oh where does the time go??

Well, like I mentioned, I saw this challenge over at Joanne's blog, and it was enough to give me a bit of a jump start....that and the fact that my baby sisters (twins!) were celebrating their 30th birthdays, and I had to get cracking!

The 'Sketch Plus Three' challenge was to follow a sketch as well as to include three elements from a list of nine. The three that I chose to use on my card are twill, paper with printed text, and kraft paper.



My sister, Patti, is quite the cook...so this stamp from MFT was the perfect choice for her birthday card. I coloured it with Copic markers, used my rectangular Nestabilities and some dimensionals to put this little card together. The background with the text is actually a recipe from one of my Mom's magazines, but shhhhhh...don't tell her! I was finishing the card at my Mom and Dad's house while visiting for the Memorial Day weekend, and I was working with less than my full array of supplies...so I had to improvise! :)

Well, I guess the time has come to wrap things up and pop on over to Joanne's blog to post my creation to Mr. Linky!

Thanks for stopping by!
