I love using sketches for a jumping off point for card designs. I have a whole Pintrest board of card sketches. This one is from Dawn Griffith It is really great that she puts the measurements on there for you, although my squares are a different size. I used scraps leftover from using 12x12 sheets for other cards.
The papers are snippets from Snowflake Splendor paper from SU--pieces from 3 different designs The snowflake is die cut from a scrap of vellum. The sentiment is from SU's Itty Bitty Christmas, new this year. I used a Sizzix Falling Snow embossing folder for the background Pool Party cardstock.
Let's Craft and Create Challenge 165 --use a sketch.
