Good morning! Happy Saturday! I hope where ever you are, you are enjoying fabulous weather and relaxing! Our weekends are usually low key or filled with errands. I’m hoping we are more on the low key side this weekend!
Today starts another fun challenge over at Catch the Bug! This week, it is a two fold challenge. First, we are all about the men – whether that means a baby boy, a child, a graduate or a grumpy old Gus, it is up to you! Secondly, we have a great sketch from our oh-so-talented Scrappy. How she does it all, I don’t know!
First, here is the sketch:
Here is my take on the challenge:
I flipped the sketch to be able and use one of my favorite card orientations. I have to admit this stumped me a bit, but I’m happy with the outcome. Sean and his dog are so cute in their wagon. I did my usual “color & search” method — color the image, then look for paper. Basic Grey Cupcake papers were perfect for this and I paired them up with Ruby Red, Brocade Blue and Kraft. Sean is cut out with a circle Nestie instead of the oval and on the little plate on his wagon, I wrote good luck. I thought this would make a cute good luck card and “we’re pulling for you” would be perfect inside.
The Brocade Blue is punched with the Martha Stewart cornice punch. I added in a bit of sheer ribbon and some very teeny buttons to finish it off.
