Tuesday Trigger and Kazan's Sketch 46

Happy Thursday fellow crafty types! Have you noticed that there are an incredible number of totally FUN challenges out in the blogosphere these days? I always have such great intentions of participating in so many of them, but then typically only end up creating cards for two or three (at the most) each week. So, this week I decided to be clever and combine the inspiration from the Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World and the layout from Kazan's sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You.

Kazan's Sketch:


Put them together and VOILA! Here's what I came up with:

You'll notice that I flipped the sketch and switched out the circle for a square. That's one of my favorite things about sketch challenges---They provide you with a starting point and then you can tweak them here and there to suit your needs. Tons of FUN!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Leave a comment so that I can come visit your blog too!
