Sunday Sketch

Today is my sweet Bailey-dog's 14th birthday. She is the first dog I ever loved, and she has a very special place in my heart.

Today's sketch puts an equally sweet photo as your focal point, accented by cuteness and love.

Start with a solid background color and a coordinating pattern for your mat. Then add another coordinating pattern as a border on the left hand side.

Embellish it as you like with a sentiment that balances out the photo across the card.
In honor of my Bailey, I used a puppy picture cut down from decorator paper. It's matted on a black card stock to make it stand out against the busy backgrounds.

The background papers are from the same set of papers, as are the border and photo. This makes it easier to coordinate - which translate to less thinking. Yay!

The card stock sticker phrase is matted with the same black card stock and is offset on the right to balance out the large photo.

This card, along with many other paper crafts and wood gifts, can be found in our Etsy shop. Come visit today for more great ideas and a gift or two.
