Gettin' Sketchy with H2H

This weeks challenge at Heart to Heart was a sketch challenge. These are some of my most favorite challenges because I love to see what one sketch can inspire in so many people. Although the sketch was published on Monday it's taken me until Saturday afternoon to get it done and posted. I had originally started off planning to make a back to school card to send out but as I started creating I decided it would be become the title for my son's school album. I managed to fit in a ton of embellishments, techniques and papers. The colors are from Jeanette Lynton's Color Me Monday challenge.

Products: Black and Honey Cardstock, Moon Doggie (red strip) which I folded like Roman Shades and sewed down, Back Country paper (plaid behind school bus), Vellum paper, Olive, black and Cranberry inks, embossing powder, dimensional elements (stars from the snowflakes DE), Olive floss for sewing, In the Month of August and Solo 2 stamp sets.

In the end this will be a great title for a school book. Now I can even coordinate his outfit for the first day of school with this!


  1. I love the Color Me Monday palette. I like how you included some Vellum paper in the background of this card. Everything comes together so perfectly! Nice job!

  2. Love this! I never noticed In the Month of August until I saw it on Jeanette's blog, now I have to have it. I love how you folded & stitched the paper.

  3. Wow, great card, love all the details. Thanks for playing along with H2H!

  4. Too cute! I love the color combo and the stitching details. Congrats on making the Fab Five this week :)

  5. Very cool Kim! Is this the one you were talking about that was featured? It should be...
