{an Easter Greeting}

Can you believe Easter is just a few weeks away! Here's a sweet little Easter card I made for the sketch challenge over at Pretty Little Studio.
 
And here's the fun sketch. As you can see, the sketch was made for a layout, but can be used just as easily for a card too!
To start, I machine stitched the beautiful houndstooth patterned paper to my cardstock base. I wanted to use a tag since tags were a big part of the sketch, so I set the tag off to the left side of my card, in place of where a photo is shown on the sketch.
Next I added a strip of the pretty yellow plaid to represent the largest stripe, then the best part, I added the cute little chick to represent the title area from the sketch.
 
Sketches can be fun to use, and definitely can be helpful if you run into a creative block. Why not give the sketch challenge at Pretty Little Studio a try! There are no rules, and you can submit any project with any kind of product. One person will be randomly be chosen to win a $10 coupon to the Pretty Little Studio store. Challenge ends on March 25th
 
Thanks for stopping by today!
