Just Add a Sketch - Version #2

Today is another gorgeous sun-filled Autumn day - I sure hope this is a taste of what lies ahead for Winter. Usually Melbourne has a lot of grey days in Winter but these frosty mornings with days full of sunshine remind me of my home town of Nelson in NZ. Walking to school we sometimes used to pray for rain and cloudy skies so that the frosts wouldn't seem so freezing!! Funny how things change :-)

And today's card is another for the sketch challenge that is still open at Just Add Ink. This challenge is running over two weeks (and still has two days to go!) to enable all those going to the Stampin Up! Convention on the Gold Coast to take part too. You can see my original post and card here :-) The Team made a fabulous variety of cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment and pop on over and take a look.

Here is the sketch again:

And here is version 2:

So another masculine birthday using the same DSP - have simply switched around the colours for a different look. Do you think the slightly "faded" look to the balloon looks like a favourite pair of jeans? It was supposed to be rich and blue…but I quite like how it's turned out :-) What do you think??

Card stock: Night of Navy, Garden Green, Tangelo Twist
Designer Series Paper: Birthday Bash
Inks: Night of Navy, Versamark
Stamps: Celebrate Today
Accessories: Big Shot, Balloon Frameltits, Banner Framelits, Large Polka Dot EF,  Gold EP, Gold Twine

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are having a great start to the week and have a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink and see the original post for the Challenge and all the wonderful ideas the Team has to inspire you and I look forward to seeing what you will create with this sketch too!

Happy stamping until next time,
