This week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches includes a big diagonal stripe. I already posted this card for it but I had actually started in a different direction with angled speech bubbles. Then I realized the little critters needed to be on a narrower panel - then I didn't want to angle the speech bubbles very much so I didn't hide any little critters - then I added layers of colored bubbles two of which were fairly straight. When I got to the picture, I just didn't really see the big diagonal stripe anymore but I like the card so here it is!
Aren't they just darling? I don't use many cute stamps any more. My sons are college-aged and my nieces are tween/teens going on 30! But I think I have a small window with the tween that I can mix a few cute cards in so I am taking full advantage of it!
Here's the sketch for this week. I hope to see you play along!

What an adorable second take on the sketch, Kim. Those critters are so cute and the use of the speech bubbles for the diagonal is such a clever idea.ReplyDelete
