Sketch Inspiration

I know I have said this before but I'm going to say it again today - I love sketches! I love that someone else has thought of a unique way to lay out the papers and embellishments and I can just follow that and it is a "community" thing because of the others who also use the sketch and share their creations! This time I used a sketch from Sketch This and 2 Sketches 4 U.
Sketch 63 - Sketch This. This gave me a great reason to pull out some really YUMMY October Afternoon products.
Because the ledger patterned paper had blue lines in it, I decided to play up that color along with the obvious red in the other print. See my little spritz of my newest find!!! Memories Mists! That just seemed to tie everything together.
2 Sketches 4 U - Laura's sketch #7 and products from my August I Am A Scrapaholic kit.
The chipboard flower has just a simple spray of Glimmer Mist on it and it now matches my papers and what you can't see here is the "glimmer" that is on it.
More sketches cards later this week.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
