A Sketchy Birthday
It's that time, again! Time for our daily mini challenge, to celebrate the 2nd birthday of Bugaboo Stamps! I hope everyone is enjoying the mini challenges and is finding the time to play along!
Today's mini challenge is a sketch challenge. If you're like me, you love sketches! They are fantastic inspiration for thinking outside the box!
Remember, there is one more mini challenge tomorrow, so be sure you come over to Catch The Bug and keep participating in the festivities! While you're there, check out the fabulous projects being showcased today, too!
Today I'm using the sketch for today's mini challenge, along with this cutie patootie image, Deacon-Cake, by Bugaboo Stamps. Deacon is colored with Promarkers. I used masculine type colors for this one, so I'd have a male birthday card. After all, we can't forget the boys now, can we?! Ive used all scrap papers from my stash, with a mix of polka dots, stripes and flourishes. The border is punched with a border punch by Martha Stewart. I've also used several other punches: circle, scalloped circle, oval and scalloped oval. The sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You.
