~Sketchy Inspiration at The Sweet Stop~

Happy Monday!! Well hopefully it'll be a happy Monday for everyone! It's a cold one here in Arizona, so I think a day of crafting and keeping warm is in order!! 
I came across a great challenge at The Sweet Stop, a sketch challenge, which I hardly ever do, but I loved this one for some reason. So, I decided to give it a try. I made this card for a dear friend of mine that lost her husband a few days ago. I hope it lets her know how much we're all thinking about her. We love you Mary!

On to the sketch... The sketch below is what we were to follow at The Sweet Stop. We could turn it, flip it, change the shape but needed to stay as close as we could to it, so I believe I accomplished that. Sometimes it's nice to have that inspiration, whether a picture, a sketch, an idea to jumpstart your creative juices. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my card. I appreciate ya taking the time out of your busy day! Have a great week!!
