Moving Along With The Times...sketch time...



Hey everyone,

It's almost Christmas, time to relax and hang out with your loved ones. I for one cannot wait!

Before that we have one last challenge from Team B over at Moving Along With The Times.. our wonderful Hostess this week, is our leader Hazel, she has chosen a sketch theme.

At the time that the DT calendar was released I had just bought the gorgeous Pink Petticoat Flamingoes. I was inspired to create a really girly, but not too busy take on the sketch.

I went with a very busy floral backing paper, so all the other elements had to be simple and pared back. The circles were die-cut from a pink houndstooth embossed paper that JT sent me. I added a simple pink border around the image and some pink candi to finish off.

It's way more pink than I normally use, but I love that the sketch took me to a different place, which is great - stepping out of my comfort zone is healthy!

To see more wonderful creations by Team B and to join in the sketchy fun pop on over to MAWTT.

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and thanks for playing with us at MAWTT throughout 2014.
