Let's Craft and Create Challenge #165: A sketch (with the option of anything goes)...

 I don't often use sketches, even though I have collected enough of them to fill a little photo book. But I really should use them more often, so I am SO grateful for our latest challenge at Let's Craft and Create suggesting we all use a sketch.

A lot of the sketches I have collected are from Cardz TV. Each sketch has all the sizes listed, and they are incredibly easy to put together. Here's a photo of the one that I used for today's card.

I made my center square a little larger than the one in the sketch to accommodate my image, but otherwise followed it pretty closely.

This is my card. My cute little toad is an image from Miss Kate Cuttables that I cut out with my Silhouette (you can also see him on this card). I've given him some googly eyes to add to his expression and inked around the edges. All the rectangles that decorate the front of my card were cut from scraps of Stampin' Up cardstock. Even my toad was cut from scraps!

My sentiment was computer-generated and adhered to a Spellbinder's label die-cut with a sparkly enamel dot on each end.

On the inside, I added another party hat and birthday gift that came from the same Miss Kate Cuttables file

The sentiment was, again, computer-generated.

I hope you'll join in on the fun and make a card from a sketch. If you haven't collected any sketches, you'll find thousands of them on Pinterest.

The Design Team has provided lots of inspiration on the Let's Craft and Create Challenge Blog. Be sure to take a peek at all the awesome cards they've made. 

We're looking forward to seeing your entries.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

This is just too cute - and love the sketch - will have to go take a look at them in a bit. You use your silhouette a lot, I have "often" thought about getting one, but then I look at all the dies I have and go hmmmm.
