Sketch Saturday

This time I thought that I would try the latest sketch to appear on Sketch Saturday. This time, to make one of the many Christmas cards I am going to need this year!

The sketch looks like this…..


And my card looks like this….


It is not as close a match as I would like in that the three embellishments are supposed to be below the scalloped top edge, but hey – I think that it is close enough!!

I am not entirely convinced by this card, I think that something is not quite right about it, but I cannot work out what that is! In any case, I am most definitely enjoying making more cards again – it is fun and I am having a great time exploring what little creativity I have – I can’t paint or draw or create anything else, so this suits me very nicely.

The only trouble with that is that the more I get creative, the more I spend on this hobby!! Still, sometimes I come across some good bargains – there is a shop in the high street that is phasing out their wooden stamps and selling them for half price!!! I bought several of them, including the image used above.

What a fabulous card! I love that little village scene. Great papers. The colours work really well together. keeleyxx

Love your card. I think it's perfect! Thanks for joining us on Sketch Saturday, especially this week as it's my last as DT.
