Sketch Saturday No. 97

Well I'm back again with another challenge. It's one of my niece's birthday on Tuesday and I needed to get a card sorted, flicking through the challenge blogs, the one on Sketch Saturday just screamed at me.

Think I'm getting better at picking colour schemes and coordinating everything (opening myself up to be shot down in flames by those who don't like the bright colour scheme - but the niece in question is only going to be 8). I started with the sketch, picked an image and sentiment, then found a background paper that I liked and coordinating plain papers, and only then coloured my image so that it had some of the colours from the background paper. I don't know if that's how everyone else does it but it seems to be working for me at the moment.

I did play with the layout slightly on this as the image I picked was the other way round from the sketch, and I moved the sentiment from the left to the right of the image - don't know why but I just thought it looked better there.

Anyway, hope you all like - oh, by the way, if there is anyone who stops by and actually looks at my blog - you must go to just tracy's and support the grand opening of her bricks and mortar shop on Saturday 10th April - I soo cannot wait, not only will she have loads of wonderful cardmaking stuff, but loads of other crafts and knitting too!!!
