Less Is More 52: Sketch

Here's the current challenge over at the Less is More blog:


We were to follow this sketch closely...landscape orientation, 'band' on the left, sentiment on the lower right.
I love this sketch!  It lends itself so easily to all themes, from fun birthday to elegant wedding.  I chose to do a birthday card.


Image is by Hero Arts and sentiment by Penny Black.  Stamped the image with Tuxedo Black Memento on SU Pink Pirouette and colored with copics.  Border punch by SU.

Thanks for peeking!
