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!
