The DT for Magnolia-liscious will be doing a monthly sketch challenge. This months sketch was created by Claudia. I decided give this first sketch a try...after all, you know how I love sketches....1/2 the work is already done for you! heehee

I did flip the sketch upside down...but I kind of wish that I didn't as the card seems a little top heavy to me. I wasn't planning on doing all those trees when I started...they just kind of "grew"...get it...grew? hmm...anyhow...I love this paper by My Minds Eye. I cut the large trees out from another sheet. Too much ya think? not quite what I had in mind. I added the Shimmerz to the bottom and the cuff's of Tilda's coat. It looks real cute irl. I wanted to shimmer Edwin too...but I figured he would have looked like he was getting ready to appear on Dancing with the Stars! Oh boy, I am really cracking myself up tonight. That's what happens with only a few hours sleep last night. And just to be clear, I only drink alcohol very rarely...this is just my natural silliness. :)

Have a Delectable Tuesday!

My your colouring is great! I love the card. Maybe you would have been happier if you had put the kids and trees at the bottom? I like the colours and the trees very much.

Wonderful card, Kerry! I love the cuttlebugged pieces and I'm pretty crazy about that paper, too! It's not too many trees and your coloring is always the best!
