Scrapbook and Cards Today Sketch Contest!

Welcome Back!

Today I'm sharing a layout that I created based on a sketch challenge posted at Scrapbook and Cards Today. 

This is the oh so fun sketch that was posted: 

And this is my take on the sketch ...
I enjoyed using the Farmhouse collection from October Afternoon -- the banners are cut out from a sheet of patterned paper and the bird is a cute embellie from the chipboard sheet.

Just in case you can't tell, the title of this layout is "the best of friends walk side by side".  I used mini-alphas and words from Authentique to create a multi-size and "interesting" title.

And of course I have a card to share :) ... it isn't made from the scraps, as I'm still saving those ... but is still a pretty card nonetheless!

This card is made using a clear card from CTMH & paper from Fancy Pants.  I used eyelets to attach the paper to the clear card.

As you can see here, I also used a transparency for part of the card design too.  This kind of card is fun to make ... but you really have to think about what is on the reverse side of each paper before attaching to the card :)

Thanks for stopping in today!  Be sure to visit again tomorrow :)
