Gave it a go at 2 Sketches 4 U




When I first saw this sketch I really found it a difficult sketch to work with but that's what a challenge is all about. I have had these Roger La Borde embellishments for a long time now and I knew one day I would get to use them. I absolutely love the long, artistic and whimsical looking figures.

For this card I embossed the heart with my cuttlebug and for the swirly design at the bottom I used the same paper which I also embossed, I wanted the the swirl to be in the background and that is why I used the same paper to do this and embossed it to add texture.



The challenges I have included-
2 SKETCHES 4 U, LAURA'S #39 SKETCH
EMBOSSING, LOTS TO DO
