Technostamper's Monday Lunchtime Sketch #65

I first looked at this sketch and thought...no way can I do this! But, it's a challenge for a reason and it turned out that I CAN make this sketch happen!

I got to use more items from the Occasions Mini...remember the special this month....Spend $40 from the Occasions Mini and choose one item from page 208 from the Spring/Summer Catty for free! Or hostess a workshop of $150, get one of those items free!

Here's the sketch:
And here's my card using Forest Friends:



I flipped the sketch a bit, putting the circle on the opposite side. That's a little trick I learned at Yearbook Camp in the 80s (thanks Jostens!) Make sure that person in the photo is facing into the layout otherwise it looks like they want to leave the layout!

I've got texturing on the circle thanks to my Big Shot and brought out the Color Spritzer for the base of the card (thanks for the inspiration, Robin...she used it in a Blogger's Challenge and I realized I had neglected mine for a little bit!)

The tag has the trees on it by accident! I was trying to use up the cardstock that didn't work for me the first time I tried my focal image and caught the top of the trees on the tag. I used the omitting technique (using a marker to ink part of a stamp) to add Thanks to the tag!

Thanks for looking and make sure to see what the other Technostampers were up to AND (I can't say this enough) PLAY ALONG!!!!

what a great job you did, and funny how it changes the look to do something as little as flip the sketch!
