Rose’s Garden

roses-garden-1-diane-zechman.jpgYea!  It’s Friday!  And today I am sharing a sketch for you to try.  This is my second card with the Sarah Kay images from Stampavie and I am loving them!  I started out with this sketch in mind.  I was in the car one day, waiting for someone, and doodled a few sketches.  So I decided to use this one for my challenge today.  The dotted paper was chosen first because I was looking for something with a small pattern, knowing it would get mostly covered.  I have a hard time covering up those pretty papers!  Then I chose a nice contrasting color for the card base.  Next I was digging through my ribbons and found this one which I love and completely forgot I had!  It all came together from there.     

sketch-3-diane-zechman-7-08.jpgCutting the main image wasn’t too difficult…I don’t have any tricks to tell you.  Just cut a slant and use the first cut as a guide for cutting the second side.  Then adjust it to fit the card.

I hope you play along with the sketch!  If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword PCSC3 (for Paper Cookies Sketch Challenge 3).  And don’t forget to link back here…I would love to see them!  🙂

    Just had a few minutes at the library and checked out your blog. I’ve been having issues with teal, and your card is just the ticket for me. I will have fun with the sketch.
