OWH Sketch Challenge #123

Have you looked through at all the ideas and inspiration shared on the OWH Memorial Day Bloghop 2012? In addition to commemorating Memorial Day, we honored the mighty CARD SKETCH! Operation Write Home has a great collection of sketches, and a new one is featured every Sunday on their blog!

For this week's OWH Sketch Challenge I tried something new.  Instead of formulating a perfect plan in my head for this sketch (which can be really hard to do some days), I just grabbed scraps off my pile and started trimming to the prescribed sized.. Once I saw it "live" and to scale,  I started grabbing some other things I had laying around the craft room, including the cute kite stamp ($1 find at Michael's) and an assortment of blue paper from PTI.  The mojo was flowing! The cloud was hanging out on the corner of my desk (left over from another project), and I dug around in my cupboard for this nice sentiment (another $1 find). I did some inking, copic coloring and Cuttlebugging, and here are the results!

This was really fun to make....I might need to whip up some more for my OWH box!   Thanks for stopping by to take a look.  Have a wonderful week!
