{5.19.2013} wanna sketch no. 5

Whoop Whoop…

Thank you so much to everyone who played and left such sweet comments about Wanna Sketch.  It makes my heart so happy.  I selected a couple HIGHLIGHTS from the Wanna Sketch #4 entries.



Shut the front door Barb… ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
I would have never thought of such a thing.
Thank you for the amazing inspiration.


Therese is so talented and I love how she used the sketch so literally, but with her twist.
LOVE that big bold POP of color against the black background.


A gorgeous peackock feather plus a sketch and a card inspired by her jeweled box turned into one STUNNING card.  I think her feather inspired today’s card on some level.  It stuck with me.

Thank you so much to all who played along.

Now, moving onto sketch #5.  hee hee.
I hope you are enjoying these sketches as much as I love to create them.
Ready or not… here is Wanna Sketch #5


The truth all prettied up with feathers.  Ha.
This is one of my favorite sayings.
‘It is what it is’.
When life gives you lemons, you can’t turn it into a lime.
It is what it is.
So make lemonade and add vodka.
Or send a cheeky card to your friend.

I do not play with pre-made elements very often.  I just thought these feathers were too pretty to pass by.  They came in a pack of three, but I just used this one to start with.  I added a fun patterned paper square behind it and a sentiment banner just like the sketch.  My feathers were a little too big for a portrait card, so I turned it

I would really love it if you play along.
I just LOVE to see these sketches put into action.
No rules just fun.

I would love it if you shared the sketch and linked back.
But I won’t hunt you down if you don’t.
The linky will stay open till June 15th.
