Using a Sketch

Morning all.  Time for another challenge at Back to Basics and Beyond.  I feel right at home with this week's challenge as it's something I do a lot.  The challenge is to use a sketch.  We found this sketch on Pinterest.

If you don't use pinterest - personally I'm addict to the place and I have a massive board of sketches - then there are various sketch challenge blogs where you can find inspiration.  I used to keep a folder on my computer with sketches from sites and they are a fabulous resource when you are struggling to come up with an idea.  The design team and I would love to see how you interpret the above sketch so please join in the fun.

My card uses two cute gingerbread men from Digistamp Boutique.  I'm gutted that Sally Ann has stopped trading as she was one of my regular go to places for an image.  There are so many digital stamp sites closing and I do miss them.  Here is what I did with the sketch.

I recently bought a distressing tool and this is it's first outing and I'm very pleased with the results.  I hope you like my card and will be inspired to join us.

Thanks for reading.
