Just A Sketch!

This week at Guylous Inimitability our challenge is coming to us from Carmen at Piece of Paper. She always comes up with an interesting sketch for us to work with, as you can see:

It is never just one or two layers from the wonderfully, creative Carmen, it is multiple that make us think about how everything will work and flow with each other. Thank you Carmen for getting our creative juices going! It is a fantastic sketch!

Here is the card I made:

I used the image "Farha". When I saw Carmen's sketch I new I wanted to go with a monochromatic look. Just figured with all of the different layers it would look cool. Now this is hard for me...I have seen so many cards out there that look wonderful with all the different papers but as soon as I start laying them out I don't like how it looks....BUT this one I think turned out pretty good! To be perfectly honest though it took me almost an hour just to decide on the papers! Didn't take me that long to decide on the image! That was the easy part! LOL

I used Copics but added the clear Spica pen to her dress edges, dots, and jewels. I wanted to have that little bit of sparkle! Then added some bling. The picture does not do it justice.

Check out the DT projects you know they will all kick butt! And don't forget to check out our guest designer, Aunty Sue's ( as well! Starts today and ends at 10PM (est) on September what are you waiting for? HUGS
