Hi Friends,

Well, it's the 15th of the month, and you know what that means? Of course you do, it's time for the next installment of the Everthing but the Kitchen Sink sketch challenge.

This month's inspiration comes from Kelly Marie's Day bed.

And here's the sketch

I have to tell you that I struggle with these kinds of layouts. I've done different things in the past with these layouts and always ended up disatisfied. Well, this time, I took a different approach. I decided that I would try to step outside of my usual style and go a little more graphic, I guess. And this is what I came up with.

And you know what, I actually am pleased with it. Like I said, it's different from my normal style, so it's a little unusual. But I think it's pretty cool and would make a great card for a man. I am always needing cards for guys since flowery, glittery, butterfly, gems, etc. aren't exactly manly. Anyway, I hope you like and really hope you participate in the challenge this time.
I think when you read what the prize is, you will really want to participate.. It's the two Practicing Creativity stamps sets from dear Ms. Courtney, so get those creative juices flowing!
Happy crafting girls!
