Smile - it's a sketch!

Time for a sketch week at Corrosive! We're playing for a new set of prizes this month - stop by and play along! Here's the sketch:

And here is my card:

This stamp is from My Favorite Things and I picked her up at CHA - just couldn't resist! Paper is from Cosmo Cricket - DeLovely. Here are just a couple of Big Ideas for this week:

* Allow yourself to take some liberties with a sketch but keep the overall look so the sketch can be "seen". In this case, the oval changed to a different shape and the image section was positioned higher on the card than the sketch shows. I also added a section with a sentiment at the bottom but even with the changes, you can still see how this card was based on this sketch.
* I've probably mentioned this before but it doesn't hurt to say again - allow elements on your card to overhang an edge for an interesting element. In this case my ribbon (2 pieces together creates the 2 colors) overhang and add to the whimsy of the card. Just remember you need a larger envelope to fit the elements!

Now it's your turn to get creative with the sketch! Be sure to link up at the Corrosive Challenge blog so we can see your artwork. You might just be this month's prize winner!
