Paper Crafts magazine Presents: Bonus Sketch Blog Hop

Hello,
I am so glad and honoured to be part of the fun Paper Crafts blog hop in celebrating this special issue of Cards Ideas for Paper Crafters. Currently, Paper Crafts magazine online editor, P. Kelly Smith are hosting a "Bonus Sketch Blog Hop"over Paper Crafts Connection.

Photo courtesy of Paper Crafts

10 of us were asked to design a card using one of the 12 bonus sketches which can be found here. I choose Lucy Abrams sketch to make the card:

My card base on her sketch:
How fun is this sketch as I ended up came out with this "towel" ideas for couples who are celebrating their anniversary. The sentiment that I've used from Lawn Fawn gave a perfect touch on this card!

For me, to follow the sketch closely was one of my greatest challenge in this call as I knew I just couldn't follow. Although the sketch can be interpret in different ways eg. flip them, rotate them, invert them or use them as seen but still the end results always not pointing towards the sketch or sometimes just couldn't recognise the card was base on the sketch. However, it was fun to create a card base on the sketch which actually push me to step out of my comfort zone.

Please do continuing visit bellow designer's blog hop for more inspiration!
