A Sketch and Color Challenge Get Well

Trying out a new sketch challenge today!  Where would I be without these challenges to inspire me...  ???  Today's card is for the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge 56.  I also used colors from Lyssa's In Love from Color Sunday post.

Had a tough time with the photograph, but trust me that the sentiment is visible! 
  • Markers are a great way to add variety to an image.
  • Mix up your stamp sets!  There are three sets used on this card (Tag It, Six Sided Sampler and Positively Chevron).
  • This is a pretty flat card (for me at least!) I rarely stamp directly on the card base! Since SU Cardstock is so sturdy, you can definitely make it work and still have a very sturdy card.
  • Dots!  Love those dots!  I design primarily by eye, and what looks right to me;  keeping things in threes always helps!

I have a very busy September coming up!  Two posts tomorrow, one for Technique Twist and another one that will be a surprise!  I will also have my Project and Card Sketch for Craft Project Central posting over the next two weeks.

Not to mention all the fun SU Specials going on!  Today is the last day for the Paper Pumpkin $10 special!

Have a great Labor Day Weekend, and be sure to stop by tomorrow for two fun challenge posts!
