OA Thursday Sketch

Hey everyone!  Today is sketch day on the October Afternoon blog, and I it was my turn to come up with a sketch.

I was needing a bit of inspiration to get a sketch together for the post, so I went searching for some at Pinterest.com.  While there, I found this pin:

I was really drawn in by the color and the design.  So with my inspiration found, I came up with a sketch:

I put the sketch in an 11 x 8.5" format, but it would work very well for a 5.5 x 4.25" card also.  And that is what I decided to create with the sketch.

I used the Farmhouse collection and focused on the yellows and blues.  (I am so totally in love with yellow lately!)  I used some of the Little Flyers flags, a label sticker and two pieces of a border sticker to create the blocked row.  I then layered the chipboard butterfly, die-cut sentiment, and button for the title.

I finished it off with some twine from the Wrap pack and a few more buttons.  I was very happy with the end result.

You can check out the original post and see what Amy Heller did with the sketch HERE.

I hope you enjoyed the sketch.  If you get a chance to play along with this it, don't forget to post it in the OA Flickr group.  We all love to see what you all are creating with OA products!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
