Tuesday Morning Sketches #84

Good Morning!  I hope you're Tuesday is off to a great start.  I am a bit sad today... my oldest son turns 16 today!!  Where did all the time go?  It seems like it was just yesterday when he graced my life with his presence and changed it forever.  I feel that way about all of my children, I am just having a hard time dealing with him being 16.  *sigh*

Anyway, I have a really fun sketch challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches for you.  This week we're creating a gatefold card with cut out.  Be sure to check it out.  Our sponsor this week is Digis by Phooka, such sweet images.  Here... let me show you.

So here's the front of the card.  I'm using Phooka's adorable turtle image from her In the Zoo collection.

Here's where you can really see that the card is a gatefold card.  And then here's the inside....

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Old Olive, Barely Banana
Paper:  Daisy paper (JoAnns)
Copics:  R11, Y11, Y15, YG03, YG67
Stamps/Ink:  Pond Pals (SNSS), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Tools:  Large oval punch (SU!)

I hope you join us this week.  It'll be a lot of fun!!  Thank you so much for stopping.

What a neat layout, Melissa! I'm not sure I could do the cut-out part -- I always seem to mess those up -- but that makes it all the more fun to see your masterful creation. Such a sweet turtle image and darling card!
