Sunday Sketch

Versatile sketches are the name of the game this week. A sketch like this, very basic yet easily transformable, can be your go-to idea.

Choose two patterned papers and a solid color or one subtle pattern and a solid. You're making a border across the bottom third of the card and adding an image on the righthand side.

There's also a space for a phrase, another image or some other fun embellishment.

The creative part of this sketch is mixing and matching colors,  patterns and images to make a completely different card each time. Then you can use the same sketch, but it will still look completely original.
I had so much fun playing with this sketch. I've got a new pad of paper that I'm using to make a set of cards for my mother-in-love, so I used some scraps to put this card together.

Already-coordinated paper makes things so much easier. Two patterned papers with a thick border in between and I had a beautiful card.

The butterfly image is a fussy cut from the same paper. Don't hesitate to cut up patterned paper to get the coordinating images you need that you might not otherwise have.

To make it even better, I added four sparkling gems and a card stock phrase. Lovely!
