October Afternoon Sketch

Hey everyone!  I am coming by today to share a sketch I created for October Afternoon's Thursday sketch (which was originally posted last Thursday.)

I have been having a lot of fun creating sketches lately, and I hope you all will enjoy this one too.

In form with past couple of sketches I created, I kept with an 8.5 x 11" layout or a 4.25 x 5.5" card shape. 

I decided to create a card for this sketch, and here it is:

I created a row of embellishments with buttons, chipboard, and die-cuts.

And because I decide to go with a party/birthday theme, I added some baker's twine to the chipboard balloon to intertwine with the sentiment.  I thought it would be a fun little element on the card.

Amy Heller played along with my sketch this week, and you can see her beautiful card HERE.  

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

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great night!
