Happy Day Sketch

Another sketch inspired by a Design Team member at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog this week! Up next is the fabulous Bonnie Sharp!


I took some "liberties" with Bonnie's sketch because I got a new 6x6 patterned paper pack last weekend, the "Happy Day" collection from Simple Stories!  Could not pass up using those banners as part of the sketch!


Half Pint Heroines turned into my "circle" on the sketch!  (Balloons are circle-ish, right?!)  The paper already had some flourishes printed on it in chocolate brown and golden yellow, so added some of my own with the Flourishes-Scallops and Dots set!



A bit of coloring with some Copics, a smidge of twine, and lovely krafty pearls...


A sentiment combination from Half Pint Heroes and Half Pint Heroines fit right inside the label that was already printed on the paper.  Added the dotted heart from Jar Fillers-Jam Packed and one banner from Bitty Banners.  That button is actually cardstock cut with a die.  I dabbed some Frayed Burlap distress ink on with a sponge dauber (very lightly), and it took on a "wooden" look!  I am always looking for those, so I will definitely use this trick again!
