SG5- Mix it up!



When I saw this sketch I thought there was no way I could come up with something remotely interesting. Too many circles and what papers could I use and...well you get the picture. Then I calmed down and squelched the clean and simple card maker in me. This could not be a simple card. The thing about sketches is that you can mix them up. So the focal point became a frame with an alligator, and the two small circles became stars! Don't be afraid to mix up a sketch...you just may like what you come up with!
Supplies
Cardstock: Stampin Up
Patterned Paper: Making Memories
Die Cuts: Making Memories
Brads: Making Memories
