Strawberry Sketches #SS004

Hello everyone! Where does the time go? I’m here again with the fourth sketch for my new weekly sketch challenges, called Strawberry Sketches. Thank you to everyone who played along in last weeks sketch, number 3! I’m excited to see what you come up with this week when you have another go. To see if you were chosen as the random winner see the bottom of this post.

My weekly Wednesday sketches are here to help you get your cards moving, often the layout is the starting point of every card. This can be the stumbling block for some. So if you’re finding it tough this week, why not give my sketches a go. One winner will be selected at random and will receive my Wednesday card and a small gift as their prize.

Strawberry Sketches #SS004Here’s this weeks sketch, I love a wonky angle, don’t you? To balance it I’ve added a second layer turned the other way. The bottom layer is Mint Macaron which I’ve embossed with the Woodgrain folder, and the second layer is some of the gorgeous card stock we have called Irresistibly Floral. The hydrangea is from a brand new bundle called Thoughtful Branches. This is an exclusive bundle, only available during the month of August 2016. Isn’t is beautiful?

Now it’s over to you! You can interpret this sketch how you wish, the tree can can be a shape, birds, words, anything that you desire, as long as you have one main, bold image on your card. It’s really up to you. Please use my sketch as a starting point and see where it takes you. I’m excited to see what you create!
