I have had such a super time being a So Sketchy sistah and wanted to take this opportunity to thank Ally and wish all the new sistahs well on their new adventure. Ally's sketches are outstanding. I love how she is not afraid to create an out of the box design. I also love to see how everyone has a different take on her sketches too. Make sure you stop by So Sketchy for your weekly inspiration--I promise you won't be disappointed! And on that note, you can bet I will be creating more cards using her sketches in the future.
It's rather funny how this card came to fruition. I had stamped the polka dots on this clear sheet and heat set it. I wasn't sure how I was going to use it but just wanted to "try" something new. When I received Ally's sketch assignment I was toying with the idea of using my Valentine's inspiration basket and pulled out a few materials. I laid out my patterned papers and embelishments and was deciding on the layout when I spied that clear sheet with the polka dots (which was not originally intended for this project). It all came together perfectly.
