A Good Day

April is winding down, which means there's only a short while left to enter this month's Sketch For You To Try. Have you played along yet? The entry widget over on Jen's blog is FILLED with the most gorgeous creations! Stop by, have a peek, and of course, upload yours if you haven't already. The deadline is April 30. April's sketch sponsor is Unity, so one lucky sketch participant will win some stamps from Unity's Itty Bitty Collection.

I've used the It's A Good Day Itty Bitty, which I think is just darling! At the beginning of the month, I went for a boyish, grunge-like look for my sketch sample. This time, I've upped the volume with some super colorful papers and patterns from Pink Paislee's Hometown Summer collection. I changed up the main image panel from a square (shown in the sketch) to a layered set of Nestabilities shapes -- Labels Five with a Scalloped Circle and Classic Circle on top.

Have a great day!
