Laura's Sketch #4

This is the first time I've blogged about the sketches over at 2 Sketches 4 You.  Every week they have a new sketch for you to try with prizes and everything!  It's super fun and a great way to get out of your comfort zone.

At first, I didn't really like this sketch.  The way it was split up didn't make sense to me.  I didn't know where my main  image should go.  I didn't know where the sentiment should go.  But all the sudden it clicked and I'm kind of in love with this card.  It all started with the pretty DP I got out of a grab bag.  I built the entire card around that.

Here, I've used half circles made with my 1 inch circle punch to create a scalloped type effect.  I wanted something a bit bigger than what I usually do.  Then I took a scalloped circle and cut it in half for my sentiment, so that the idea repeats itself.  I also colored the bottoms of some dew drops red with Sharpie which I learned to do from Lauren Meader's blog.

Basic Recipe:
Paper: White, pink, red CS, DP (I have no idea what it is)
Stamps: Inkadinkado Birds Galore, SU Warm Words
Ink: Memories Crimson
Accessories: dew drops, scalloped punch, circle punch, gel pen
