TSG111 - Monday Challenge

I am so excited about today's post. It's challenge Monday over at There She Goes and this week's challenge is a fun sketch brought to you by none other than ME!!

When I sat down and put together this sketch I had no idea that it was going to stump me! I thought making a triangle - no problem. I think I ended up waisting so much paper trying to get it right. Then I came up with the brilliant idea to use my Cricut to cut the triangles. It worked!! Then I went through all of my TSG stamps and I wanted to use all of them. I couldn't decide. The one thing I had made a decision on was the paper - that was easy. I stamped about 10 images and finally decided on this darling little girl from the Blossom by Blossom set - which is just the most amazing set. I just love it!!

After I completed coloring the image...I wasn't all that satisfied. It was just naked! Although I love how I colored her, it just needed something else. I decided to give a go and add clouds. I was so afraid that if it went wrong I'd have to start all over. I'm glad that wasn't the case - I just love how it came out. Then looking at the bottom of the design area it was empty too. The image has grass, but I cut it all off. So I used one of the grass images and added it back in. I am so very pleased with this card. I hope you'll join in the fun and use my sketch to make your next masterpiece.
