Another Sketch Challenge!

This is another card for yet another sketch challenge ... I just love participating in sketch challenges ... unfortunately I don't have time to do everyone I see but I do try and do what I can. Julie HRR of SCS had been hinting around that there were to be some changes to the Dirty Dozen Gallery ... as I live in Australia I get to view this when it opens at midnight in the US (all going well!) Well the changes were revealed last night and this is in the form of some fun challenges which we can all play along with if we want. One of these challenges is this sketch challenge ... which of course had to be the first challenge I had to complete ;)

As you can see I hadn't put away the DP that I used for Beate's sketch challenge and I thought it would work great with this image from My Favorite Things. I stamped the image twice, once on the DP and once on white card .... I cut out all the wall on the white piece and layered this over the DP image. I also added the remote and bottles which is also part of this set.

I used the DP again for the background for this card but turned the stripes. I used more mustard card for the left side panel which I stamped using the weave b/g from Cornish Heritage Farms and the stripe between the two layers is not quite navy. This was then layered to Olive and then choc chip card.

I used 3 different colored brads in the lower right hand corner and stamped the Happy Birthday on white card and punched this out using my small oval punch and then layered this to the not quite navy using my larger oval punch.

I felt it still needed something on the piece on the left so used my photo corner punch to create the photo corners from the DP and choc chip card.

It's my DH's birthday on Friday ... so I will give this to my DD to give to him.
