Scott Sketch 160

My friend Heather Scott is back with her sketches! I am glad too, because I made this pan of gingerbread men and then had the hardest time making them into a card...just ask Gayle! I shifted and shuffled and couldn't make an appealing card! I put the sheet pan of sweetie gingerbread guys aside hoping inspiration would strike. After a few days I had an ah-ha! moment. I remembered that Heather had a sketch! So I browsed on over to her blog and sure enough, it worked! I had to make my card a portrait version of her sketch because my pan is a rectangle. Heather used a square for the image panel in the sketch and that left way to much Bermuda Polka Dot paper and the balance was off. As soon as I rotated the card I knew I had a winner! Welcome back Heather, I've missed your sketches. Go on, pop over by Heather's blog and then play in the sketch challenge!

Supplies used to make this card include:
Cocoa, Cherry, Bermuda Polka Dot, and Silver Shimmer card stocks, Cherry Twinkle Stickers, VersaMark ink and White Embossing Powder, Bermuda Not Your Grandma's Bag of Buttons, Cherry Bakers Twine (20%off right now), Corner Chomper and Fiskars Scallop Edge Scissors. The stamps are from Holiday Tags and they are on sale as part of the Spotlight until the end of the month.
