Spot a Sketch Card Sketch #0519 - First One!!!

Around two years ago, I started a Facebook group for card sketches for a team project.  After the project was finished I stopped using the group.  Then a few days ago, I was looking for inspiration and then later the group popped up.  I started thinking, we are always looking for inspiration through art, other cards, and even sketches.

A light bulb went off in my head, why don't I revive the sketch group on my own!  Scary but why not, I don't have to create a sketch weekly but twice a month.  I have already created several sketches, and this will help me to create more cards!

I will number them as such, the month, year, and if its the first or second sketch of the month.  If you would like to join in please do.  Please hashtag #spotasketch, and #ladybugstampinsketch on all social media.

I will also try to add tips with each sketch, just as we did previously. And in the future I would love to create a design team for more examples with the sketches.

I used the product medley Everything is Rosy, which is available till end of May or while supplies last.

If you purchase this bundle through my online store, you are invited to a private online class with me.

Done with the explanation, now onto my first sketch...eek!!!

And here is the card I created.

Measurements for Card, Supplies listed at end of post:

Crumb Cake Cardstock - 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2, 3 3/4 x 2 1/4, extra for punched circle
Whisper White - 3 5/8 x 2 1/8, extra for punched circle and diecuts
