2 Sketches 4 You -- Laura #9



This will look like a quick entry, because I need to get lunch for the boys and feed the baby before taking Sammy to preschool -- never a dull moment in these parts!

Laura created this fun sketch on my favorite card sketch/challenge blog -- 2 Sketches 4 You, of course! I thought that top line was a great space for a quote, and for some reason this is the one that came to mind. Then I thought turning that bottom element into a lily pad would be fun, and this card just sounded too fun not to make. I don't have a use for it right now, but I do have 4 unmarried sisters so I'm sure I'll find an occasion for it in the future! :)

The pp is all from My Mind's Eye, Magnolia collection. The scallop circle was cut at 5 1/2" with the Cricut Mini-Monograms cartridge, the frog is from Paper Dolls at 1 1/2", and the crown is from Alphalicious, sized in Design Studio. The water lily is a hydrangea punch from Martha Stewart. Fun stuff -- thanks for looking!
