Scrapbook Sisters Sketch Week.

The Scrapbook Sisters are going to be having regular sketches to follow, giving a nice change for the regular followers of the challenge.

I needed  to make a card for one of my nephews and found this sketch worked great, suiting my needs a treat as I really didn't want to add an image and stars work great for older teenagers I think.

For my DT card I removed the centre from my card using my Nestie Circles after I'd embossed and layered up my paper and card stock. I then made myself a frame which I inked to match my papers and took a black marker pen to it to echo the doodles on the paper.

 I just enlarged the sentiment area from the sketch which meant the stars needed to move with it. The stars were cut from the DP and mounted on black and raised on pinflair gel. I'm sorry I can't help you with who the papers are by, they've been in my stash for ages, left overs  from a "Crop Class" If you can get to Rainham in Kent, there's still a few tickets for the Crop this Saturday. They are always a great crafty day out unfortunately though I'm not able to attend this time.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
IWD134, Birthday,
Lollipop 68, Anything goes,
MIM77, Anything goes,
Crazy Challenge 107, Die Cuts,
Dream Valley 26, For men,
Paper Sundaes 108, Birthday.
Thanks for stopping by,
