Live Well ... Laugh Often ... Love Much

Happy Monday All!

Anyone who knows me, knows I enjoy working up a card using a sketch ...
Today, I've done just that and just in the nick of time because there's not much time left on this fun challenge.  I'm referring to the challenge over at Paper Play Sketches.  Here's the current sketch they are creating from . . .

And, here's what I've created using scraps from the scrap bin ...
What do you think?

What a QUICK and EASY card to make today
and this sketch could be used for ANY occasion ... possibilities are endless!
I hope you'll come check out this fun challenge blog and 'Give It A Go!'

  5. Great card. Fabulous sentiment. Thanks for sharing it this week with us at Crafty Catz. Naomi x

  6. That's a sketch blog I wasn't familiar with, so thanks! I love working with sketches, too, but can never seem to be current with the challenges. You, however, are a crafty whirlwind! Love this one! I have that stamp set, too. Pretty amazing use of scraps. Not sure I could pull this out of my scrap drawer. I keep working on it, trying to use them up before they pile up too much. Keep up the good work, Darlene!

  7. This is so pretty! Love the purple and gold! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Paper Play Sketches! -Lori DT

  9. I love this color combination, Darlene. You always have something creative up your sleeve, and it flows out onto your beautiful cards. Thanks so much for sharing with us.
