It's time for another PPA Sketch Challenge so get your creative juices flowing.  This sketch is fun to play with making it very possible to join the fun this week at the PPA.  A special thanks to Dawn Tidd – the sketch designer this week.

In the Meadow rt3

The sketch was just what I needed in order to create a masculine birthday card for my brother-in-law.  I used In the Meadow and an Aqua Painter with Cajun Craze & Crushed Curry Ink.  The deer are colored with Crumb Cake & Sahara Sand ink and cut out with a Circle Framelit.  The edges are inked with Cajun Craze Ink.


The card base is embossed with the Zig Zag Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The sentiment is from Balloon Celebration.  I felt that the font matched the feel of my card.

A few Cajun Craze Candy Dots accent the sentiment layer.  In addition, I wrapped Linen Thread around the bottom of the card 3 times and tied a knot.
