Ten Tiny Fingers

Hi friends! I'm back with a card featuring my favorite A Day For Daisies and a new sketch for the challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

This is a great sketch and don't let the pentagon shape scare you. Here's a tip: print an extra copy of this sketch to size and cut out the pentagon and use it to trace the lines around your image. Then you just use your paper cutter to cut along those traced lines. To get the evenly spaced border, I pasted my finished image on the background cardstock and then used the paper cutter on each edge by just eyeballing an equal distance on each side.  It turns out great that way and the pentagon shape is what makes this a unique and striking layout. Have fun with it and play along with us in the challenge!

I absolutely adore A Day For Daisies images and always look forward to their sponsorship of our challenges. The lucky grand prize winner of the challenge will receive a $12 gift certificate to A Day For Daisies. We are grateful to Tammy, the owner and illustrator of ADFD, for her sponsorship.

I chose Ten Tiny Fingers from ADFD for my card today. I thought it filled out the pentagon shape so nicely and is such a sweet image. It was colored with Copic markers, some glitter added to the fairy wings and the papers are Chalkboard from We R  Memory Keepers (found them at Walmart).

That's it from me today but there's more inspiration with A Day For Daisies images over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday - pop on over to take a look at the delightful cards the design team created for you.

Thanks for stopping by!
