S.W.A.T. April Sketch

I have to say I am so enjoying being part of the Sketches with a Twist Team.  The sketches from our very own DT Member Janice have been both fun to work with and challenging to convert into a card design.  Most of all I love seeing the inspiration from my fellow Design Team Members and the entries we receive each month from our Challenge Participants.



This month we have another fabulous sketch for you, and the twist is to use some form of mesh (eg Magic Mesh, fly screen, a mesh fruit bag, etc) on your layout.  Luckily for me I had been sent some fly screen mesh as a RAK in part of a ATC Swap recently.


I straight away knew on seeing this sketch that I wanted to make a Birthday Card.  I had the fun bright colours and patterns of Echo Park's Summer Days Collection Papers already out, so when I saw the ice-creams in this collection it came to me to use them and my Sweet Birthday Wish Sentiment from my Unity KOTM Stamp Set.  For this design I also used my Ribbon Loop Punch by Martha Stewart, Circle Punches by Stampin' Up!, Victorian Rectangle Nesting Die from Couture Creations, and the Flower and Clear Rhinestone Brads are from my stash.

So who of you are up to the Challenge for April?  Whether it is as a scrapbook page or card design, we'd love to see it.  Simply head over to the Sketches with a Twist Site for further details, inspiration and to link your entry.

Danie, this is such a great translation of the sketch into a card. You're so good at that! Whoever gets this bright ray of sunshine on their birthday is a lucky person, indeed. :-)

Love the brightness and fun of the card. The association of the screen and the summer here is terrific.
