TCP Tuesday Challenge - TCPTUES55


This week TCP challenge is hosted by Carole at Mother's Little Helper who has a very FUN looking sketch for us to try - Carole will be doing the TCP sketch challenges from now on; and I am looking forward to what she comes up with being that she is an amazing creative person. Check out her blog, you will agree :)!

Really liking the clean lines of this sketch; had my mind racing with ideas.

I knew right off the bat that I wanted to use the TCP Puppy Love set to create a scene. I had a friend in mind when creating this card; so this set had a few images I wanted to use. Actually this set has so many FUN images to choose from!

Here is my take on this sketch:



These birdies are so cute; I paper pieced the kite to match the base of the card - the kite combines nicely with the sentiment! I used a finger dauber to do the sun :) The colors were inspired by these beautiful Basic Grey pattern papers - they really are colorful. This card is for a friend who is trying to make a temporary long distance relationship work and I am hoping this makes her smile! :)
