Sketch Challenge SC166



This was a fun sketch to work with. I did make two different cards. I had it in mind to use these adorable chick images that i picked up from the $1 bin at M's. I discovered that I really don't have any cutesy dp to go along with it. I adore the Porcelain Prints paper from SU and wanted to try these images with the paper, but I don't think that it came together. so I pulled off the panel and decided to use another image from the $1 bin. I think the cross is a better match for this dp. What do you think?
Who would have thought that i have thread that matches River Rock! This is left over from my quilting days. You should see my thread and fabric stash. I still do quilt, just not as much...only for special occasions... and i have so many that are not finished...quilts take a long time to make...days, weeks, months rather than the hour you spend designing and implementing your design into a card...almost instant gratification, YKWIM?

Once again, thanks for checking in and visiting with me. I think I'm out of my funk...but tomorrow is another day! LOL! I've got to get back into my work room and start measuring and cutting ribbon for Joan B.
