“I love scrapbooks. They are one of the finest ways of dejunking life and abode... A good scrapbook is interesting and inspiring even to the stranger...Well put together scrapbooks and photo albums have warmed more hearts than any bound book... Without a good scrapbook, much that's memorable in life is forgotten or damaged or lost...."

Heart 2 Heart Challenge - Sketch week - Wishes - City Scape

This weeks challenge over at Heart 2 Heart was to follow the card pattern City Scape from one of CTMH's great How-to books, Wishes.  When I looked at the pattern I realized the card was smaller than I had imagined and my first idea was going to need more space.  I had also wanted to incorporate Jeanette Lynton's Color Me Monday combo for this week into my creation.  Well after playing around for a while, I decided to do both!  My first card follows the pattern size 4 3/4" by 3" and does indeed use Jeanette's colors of Chocolate, Sunflower, Twilight and Sorbet.  I used the Petite Perks stamp set available to earn during this Idea Book period.  I do like how it turned out, I used my blending pen to color the flower and butterfly.

But, wait, there's more....I did a second card as well to satisfy the first idea that I had, the one that needed more room!  I converted the card into a 5" by 7" to accommodate my runner girl on her jaunt through the grass and flowers.  I am enjoying using the Splendor paper pack and the designer brads that match - so much that you might just see it show up again soon!

I've enjoyed playing with this sketch - now head on over to the H2H Challenges blog to gather inspiration to create your own art!
