Sketch Saturday #351

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by
Meljen's Designs

Alex gave us a fabulous sketch which, to me, cried out for a clean and simple treatment.  CAS is not something I am comfortable with but I was late sending a card for a friend's birthday and I thought this Mo Manning image called "sheep" was just right when combined with a punny sentiment I saw recently whilst browsing the net.
I coloured my image with Copics, embossed a line above and below my coloured image and Word processed the sentiment. I take photographs of what I consider to be pretty cloudy skies when I get a chance and this image has been merged with one of them.   It would be great if you would share some love with all of the Saturdays and then why not scooch some space on your craft table and come and play along with us.  We love it when you join in!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Anything Goes at
Papertake Weekly, Loves Rubber Stamps and Hanna and Friends and Green at Creative Card Crew.  Anything Goes with optional animals at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge

OH MY GOODNESS I LOVE YOUR CARD!! first because you used the sheep! and I also used the sheep stamp this week, and I LOVED the hseep stamp so much.. it's so versatile.. Secondly, i LOVE your totally funny as sentiment!! and I'm totally going to be saving this sentiment for use at a later date!! with full credit given to you of course.. and Thirdly, because of your AMAZING use of a merged photograph background with your stamp!.. Now for someone like me who uses photoshop so much and merging I never even considered this possibility!! I am only speaking for myself, but I would LOVE IT if you made a tutorial if you shared it with with us on the Bella and Bronte Facebook page (Mo Manning's Offical Fan Page) This would be totally awesome!!... just a thought for you to consider.. If you don't wish to thats ok.. I'd be happy to make a tutorial up doing it, and give credit back to you for providing the inspiration. Anyhoo.. just think on it.... but in the meantime.. Thanks for participating in our Anything Goes w/ Optional Animal Theme at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Blog XO HUGS Amanda DT
