Good Times... Sketch Saturday Week #311 :)

Morning everyone!! :)

Well, it's time for the fourth and penultimate of my GDT posts for Sketch Saturday... this month is really flying by!! :) This sketch is really very me and I was excited to sit down to create with it... somehow still found myself slightly flumoxed by the number of layers, though, so kept things as simple as possible by sticking pretty much exactly to the sketch!! lol

I actually made this several weeks ago... I was trying to get ahead knowing that I wouldn't have much time or energy for crafting with my friends staying... but I made a mistake with the sketches and thought this was the second week's so had to go back and get another one made quick-smart when Jen set me right!! Luckily we realised we were talking at cross-purposes about design ideas while on Skype!! lol Anyway... when I made this, Jen had just brought me my first ever packs of SU! cardstock and I was just dying to have a play... such scrummy colours!!!! :)

I'd also been itching to use this CBS bike stamp and the sketch was just perfect for it... I used one half of the flowery tree from the Design A Tree set to come out of the bike's basket and then added a few butterflies from Good Times, too... love how it all came together!! :) I also kept things simpler by avoiding using any patterns and making one of the strips on the sketch a layer of vellum :)
