CKCB August Challenge #2

                       


Our second challenge this month over on the CKCB is a sketch challenge.  We worked with this adorable sketch from Roree Rumph for October Afternoon:

                                  

I decided to make a card, and I stayed pretty true to the sketch. The three panels across the front reminded me of tags, so I chose three printed tags from the Maggie Holmes journaling card paper in my kit. To mix things up a little, I punched my heart accent out of the tag panel rather than attach a separate heart embellie.  I then popped the tag panel up with pop dots and tied some Lawn Fawn yarn around the whole panel.  

I omitted two of the three "strips" on the bottom of the sketch, and instead used a strip of "hello" patterned paper as my sentiment. I made the chevron accents by trimming a 1/2" strip of paper (another journaling card from Maggie Holmes) and used just the pointy part of my heart punch. Super easy!  I also use this technique for trimming the ends of banners. You could also use a triangle or square punch. 

Thanks for popping by today!  We'd love to see your take on this sketch, either as a card or a layout!  Don't forget to link your project to the August Mr. Linky on the CKCB. :)
