Freshly Made Sketches # 237

A blog friend reminded me after my post yesterday that participating in challenges in one way of making something for a purpose.  So I spent this morning reviewing all the challenge blogs I follow and semi-prioritising those I want to continue playing in and when I want to post those cards on my blog.

It has sort of rejuvenated me, I don't feel like I am operating in this big vacuum where the only person present is me!  Don't feel sorry for me, I think I have done enough of that since we moved to a new part of the country!  Change is not always easy, but we hope to start building our home this September so in 10-12 months after that we should be happier!

Anyway, back to today and this minute, the one minute that I can influence right now, so I will share the card I made for the current challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.  Here is the sketch they provided:

And here is my interpretation in which I did take a bit of liberty.  It's always confusing to me how much you can stretch a sketch!!!

I used designer papers from Lily Bee Design and a die from Papertrey Ink.  I just loved the colours.

Yeah!!  It's weekend!  Have a great one!

I love all different interpretations of a sketch! Very pretty DSP and the sentiment is perfect tucked between the panels! Glad you joined us at FMS!

Cool take! I am with you, most of the times I follow a sketch quite closely. Yes Hero Arts now hosts a few challenges a year only, but those die hard Hero Arts fans such as myself, a2z and A Blog Named Hero are good options to play along. Also the Hero Arts flickr group scramble challenge are still running. Would love to have you join in. Look for Scramble 2016 Spring/Summer discussion to get the latest news, or try this link:
Have a wonderful weekend Brenda!
