sketchfest saturday

Is it really over?  Today is day seven and the final day for the Caardvarks Sketchfest challenge.  I had a blast this week with all the wonderful sketches from Heidi Van Laars.  She is one talented lady.


IMG_0918 I have really been into window cards lately.  Just a fun little aspect that you don’t really expect on just the front of the card.  I popped the kraft face to create the window effect and glued the patterned paper to the card front.  Then popped the pair of birds to make them the focus.  It really give a simple card some dimension.

This has been a super fun week that has really stretched my creativity.  Thanks to the whole Caarvarks crew for such a fun Sketchfest!!!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
