HLS September Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone. September? Phew! That came around quick.....

We have a brand new sketch for you at Happy Little Stampers and we hope you will play along!

There are so many ways to use this sketch and you should check out the blog if you are stumped for ideas as the Design Team have created amazing sketch cards!

Even though I created this sketch and thought it was really fun, I was stuck when it came time to actually making my card.

Instead of staring into space for hours or pulling out my hair, I decided to copy the sketch onto my card panel. I simply used a pencil, ruler and Black micron pen.

I coloured the areas that need to be with my Wink of Stella pens. Below is a close up and different angle to capture the glitter.

My sentiment is from the HLS Bold Birthday Sentiments set.

We have wonderful sponsors for this challenge -
