May Sketch Challenge at SOG.

Hello there!

It's the first of the month, and y'all know what that means, right?!

Some Odd Girl's new sketch challenge is up! Just click on that link and you'll be able to see the original post and sketch. Here's my version of it:

I had made this card for my hubby and I's anniversary. I was originally going to give it to him, but then I thought that I was supposed to turn it in to Kristy first for a special project. So I didn't write on the inside, and instead just showed my hubbster the card and gave him a smaller card with my sentiments and love note. LOL! Good thing my DH is pretty understanding. Turns out I was wrong about having to send this card in. So now, I'm debating whether to re-write the inside part on the actual card OR save it for another occasion. Haha!

Anyway, that was a funny story about the card. Now let's talk about the basics of how I put it together.

As you can probably see, I flipped the sketch on its side. I fell in love with this image (Squeezey Hugs) the first time I saw it. I just adore the facial expressions, the angles, the obvious feelings they have for each other. I knew that I would someday use it for my G, and the sketch was perfect for it.

I used some Dear Lizzy paper -- that ombre, yellow one with the tissue paper. I think whoever thought of that is genius! I had been hoarding it but it was time to finally let it have its moment! I also used some Martha Stewart heart confetti. They are a bit transparent, and I think their size is just right! And the sentiment is from a stamp by Ann-Marie Loves Paper . It came out black and yellow because I may not have completely cleaned the neon ink I used last time. A happy accident, what can I say? :)

Hope you all get to play!!
