Sketch Girls Challenge #3

It is time again for the next Sketch Girl Challenge! I created this card using Annie B's sketch below. I just love square cards and of course THICKERS! I might have mentioned that once or twice *wink*. I started my card with the patterned paper, I found the patterned paper adhered together in a square in my unfinished projects bin. I started it and then decided I wanted to change the proportions. I distressed my patterned paper reminant and added a little ribbon. I distressed a journaling tag, added a little circle of cardstock, adhered this to the patterned paper, and then added the letters on top of everything.

This was quick and easy, plus I always need masculine cards. I never have them around when I need them; I can't help it I love to make girly cards. Click HERE to play along!

I LOVE this card! I got some of these Thickers after seeing all of the cool stuff you do with them, but have yet to use them. Thanks for the inspiration . . . again!

I have yet to try Thickers. I keep picking up a package to purchase but it never makes it to the register. I love square cards and your take on the sketch is fabulous!

Harriet said...

I love your card... I like the thickers and haven't used on cards but you show me that you can....
