Sketch-tivus for the Rest of Us

Yes, you've guessed it, we're going sketchy this week... and who better to help us with such an endeavor that than our uber-talented lovely guest star and sketch creator extraordinaire, Amy Tsuruta. Here's the beautiful sketch she's whipped up to inspire us:


Here are the cards we've made this week:



Lauren says, "One way you can tell an AWESOME sketch from a merely good one is that you can make a tall card, a wide card, or even a square card, and have them all be equally fab. I went with wide this week because it just seemed to give my diecut sheet music reindeer and his cluster of frilly embellishments a little more room to breathe!"

Stephanie says, "When I saw the over-layed embellishments in the sketch, I remembered some 3-D ornament gift tags in my stash.  Since they were glittery, I my favorite DCWV glitter papers on the background.  A few snowflake sequins and a tiny holiday sentiment, and this card was complete."


And now it's your turn to make a holiday card using Amy's gorgeous sketch! Link it up right here by 6pm (EST) on Wednesday, September 24th. Keyword for galleries or flickr is JB:14:19.

Wonderful cards, ladies. It's high time to catch up on making some Christmas cards, but with Amy's fab sketch this should be no problem whatsoever!

Oh I LOVE your cards...how fun that all 3 are so drastically different. That's what it is all about...making the sketch your own.

I can't wait to see how everyone is inspired!

Thanks so much ladies!
