I paired this with this sketch challenge from 2sketches4you
Isn't that interesting. Here is my take on the two challenges
I really like they way everything came together. I am playing around with a neat ribbon treatment I saw in the Stamp Up catalog. It was a widder ribbon that they tied off at different points to create this look. I used some of Izzy's rubberbands for her hair so that it would match. It didn't look quite like I had invisioned, but I am going to try it again with tighter ties to see if that is the tick.
I also did some major spounging on every layer. I have been watching all of Beate's videos and she talks about spounging all of the time. I never thought about using it on every layer, but the effect is fun. I also really like the stiching I think it tied in the ribbon as well.
This card is for my sister Dana. She finished a half marathon. That is 13.1 Miles!!!!! This will work so well for her and the colors suite her as well. It is hard for me to think of my baby sister as a grown woman, but she really is quite neat. I am so proud of her!
It's a good life!
