SKETCH SATURDAY #36
This week's sketch over at Sketch Saturday really got me itching to create a card with it. Mom-in-law's birthday is only in April, so I've at least managed to have one card to tick off. The positioning of the image on this sketch shouted photo to me and this photo of Mom was calling to be used.
The birthday sentiment was stamped as well as the tag punch-outs with the text on. The three patterned paper arches were done using the Brick template from Doing Life's Online Shoppe.
Please don't forget to visit Sketch Saturday to have a look at the gorgeous creations of their Design Team.

Thanks again for taking some time out to pop in. All your lovely comments mean a lot to me. Off to edit my niece, Heidi's baby shower photos of Saturday. Wishing you all a fabulous month of Love.
