Sweet Sketch Wednesday #38

Good Morning! I hope you're having a SWEET week so far. Arlana has another fabulous sketch for this week and we have a sweet sponsor, too. MyGrafico joins us this week as the sponsor and we received a very cute digi to play with, too. I recently had the great fortune to be on the design team for the MyGrafico Challenge blog, so it's fun to "be back."



Fun sketch right? There is so much possibility with this sketch - but that's true for all of Arlana's sketches.



Here's my take on the sketch. When I was given this image to use, I knew right away that I wanted to keep it clean and simple and for a small child's birthday card. The card came together rather quickly. I colored the image with my much neglected Kohi-noor pencils and OMS. I don't do bright colors very well, so I going with the pencils gives me bright with a safety net. I added black ribbon with a white grosgrain ribbon to sort of create a road.

I hope that you join us this week. Please go over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday so you can play along, gets lots of inspiration and eye candy and have some fun! Thank you for stopping by!
