Just Magnolia - Challenge #28 - A Sketch
I haven't had too much time lately for challenges. I've been missing out on some really good ones too! I knew though when I saw the current sketch challenge for Just Magnolia that I had to make time for this one even if it meant giving up sleep. I took one look at the sketch and I immediately thought of Gloria the Hippo and usually when an idea pops that fast into my head I need to go with it. It also meant that I could continue on with my personal goal of using stamps I haven't inked up yet. Can you believe I hadn't used Gloria yet???? She is just too cute!
As the card developed it went from what I had planned to be a birthday theme to a Valentines Day card. I know....everyone else is busy making Halloween, Fall and Christmas cards and here I'm making a Valentines Day card! It just seem to go together that way. I'll be one card ahead when Valentines Day comes around. Below is the sketch for the challenge.
I also chose to do a simple design on the inside with my remaining scraps.
Hope your having a great week and thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to check out the awesome creations over at Just Magnolia.
