MFT Wed Sketch Challenge
Do you like to mix things up when you make cards? I don't know that I like it, but I do find that I am often mixing things up to accomplish something specific. For this card I wanted to do two things. Both required mixing it up a bit. First I wanted to create a card that could be used in the MFT sketch challenge. However, the image I wanted to use was a vertical image. The sketch was horizontal. So I flipped the sketch on the side. Second I wanted to create a St. Patrick's Day card to send to Pam for her pack of cards for cards for soldiers. So, my a la mode girl was originally holding a clock, but I mixed it up by having her hold instead an image of a shamrock.
I think it came out just fine. Do you like the fact that our young girl has gray hair? I have some young friends who have had grey hair since their late 20's so I thought it would be fun to use this hair color instead of my usual browns and blondes. I also had fun doing lots of dots with this one. I also had fun using green, a color we don't see a lot of here in New England these days.
Thanks for looking and especially thanks for commenting. You make my day when you leave me notes.
