Magical Monday - Sketch Challenge

It's another Magical Monday over at Paper Cupcakes! This week over at the Paper Cupcake's Challenge Blog the challenge is brought to us by Lucy Marino. She made a sketch for us to follow and I always love sketches. At first I had a little tough time figuring out if the whole page was the sketch or just the circle part, but then I decided it didn't matter, it is how you personally interpret it. Which is what I love about challenges, mainly because we all see things differently and therefore interpret things differently. Just like how we create. So, I stopped stressing about if I was doing it correctly or not and just made a creation. I wanted to do 2 cards one each way, but I ran out of time and just got this done.

I made an easel card and colored the image "Orson; Many Thanks" by Paper Cupcakes with my Bic Mark-its. I used my cat eyes chalk to ink the edges of my image and used scrapes for my pp. The scallop is made from punched/embossed buttons that I glued around the circle. I thought the button holes would add interest and I loved how it turned out (thanks mom for the punch).

So, many thanks for stopping by and extra thanks if you left me some lovins! Have a great week!

Your easel card is a cute as can be.
I love the colors you chose to showcase Orson. I really like the buttons around the circle and the button holes really do add to the look of the card, just like you said. It is always so much fun to see what others do with the same sketch.
