gettin' sketchy with it!

a few weeks ago, BR-T from unscripted sketches invited me along to see their cool new sketch challenge site. they post a new design every saturday, and you can make a layout, a card, and atc...whatever format you enjoy...in whatever size you'd like. they're currently on sketch #6 and it's a goodie...see?!

i have to confess that this is not the most literal sketch-to-card translation i have ever done, but i feel like "the bones" are there...and i hope the "unscripted" folk will understand. having said that, i am fairly pleased with the finished product, which is a rather funky anniversary card for my (rather funky!) aunt and uncle. :)


(patterned paper & pink border sticker: basic grey; kraft cardstock: bazzill; chipboard & cardstock diecuts: k&co; eiffel tower stamp: hero arts (stamped on a page from a vintage french dictionary; rhinestone flourish: prima; acryllic stickers: heidi swapp; rub-ons: creative imaginations; inks: colorbox; pens: sharpie & zig; adhesives: tombow monoadhesive runner, uhu gluestick, 3m foam tape)
