3 Ways With Sketches

Hello friends
Thank you all for confirming it isn't too early to be festive - hurrah!
In this month's edition of Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine I was asked to 
design a sketch and then three cards.
I wasn't worried about the cards but I've never designed a sketch before.
I decided to go for a very basic sketch and one that I could generate on my computer.
(In the magazine they've made it look much better, with colour and everything!)
Feel free to use this sketch, if I have time I hope to create more sketches and will post them now and again.

For my first card I've turned the sketch to allow me to place three little snowflakes from 
Create-A Flake Three  along the bottom.  
I've pretty much stuck to the sketch design with the borders etc.
The papers are Kaisercraft - Turtle Dove, very vintage and my cup of tea.
I've had a search and the 6x6 pad can be purchased here.
I will be sharing the two other cards with you over the next few days.
(The Kits and Bits button had a gremlin yesterday, I investigated and gave the little rascal
its marching orders!)
Have a nice Thursday and see you tomorrow for ...
Take care friends.

Hi Christine, Thank you for looking into the 'Bits and Bobs' problem. I've just had a sneak peek and left a comment.
The idea of skcetching a plan is a good one. Although I dont draw a lot these days, I quite often sketch my ideas prior to a project, it often helps with visual balance.
Crafty best wishes, Carolyn x
