My favourite challenges are sketch challenges!

I'm pretty sure it's because I have such a difficult time with layouts and sketch challenges do all the hard work for me. Today I'd like to thank Sketch Saturday for their Challenge # 57.

This is a 5" square card, but methinks it should have been a 6" square. By the time I got through adding embellishments etc., it was feeling a bit cramped to me. Doesn't matter, I still like the whimsical feel of the card. It makes me think of sun-filled days at the beach, sand-in-the-toes walks by the ocean and being lucky enough to see a pod of whales playing just for the fun of it!

Cardstock: PTI Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush
Designer Paper: BoBunny
Stamps: SU - Silly Sea Life, Happy Everything
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Embellies: Glitter Dots, Primas, Brad, Glamour Dust
Colouring: Copic Markers
