a sketchy Saturday CARD for Paper Issues today!

hey there, chickens!

you know we do this thing at Paper Issues where we throw down a sketch and ask you to make something based on it, yeah?  well this month, our girl Jennifer Chapin has whipped up a sketch that I LOVED in a serious way and totally challenged myself because it's totes outside of my comfort zone.  GRIDS.  i don't do 'em.  i struggle with boundaries and symmetry for the most part, so when i saw the March sketch, i knew i had to jump in.

so.  in all its griddy goodness, here's my card, featuring some disguised goodies from the February Swag Bag (the March one is coming - stay tuned, or grab a subscription so you don't miss any!):


YES.  grid.  but i transformed it into a card, because that's what you do with sketches!  you use them as a starting point for your crafty endeavour, and you go to town.  here's the sketch for you to try on for size:






well?  fab, right?  if you get in on this sketchy action, link up your project by March 20th and you might be the lucky winner of a $10 gift certificate to the Paper Issues store!  annnnnd, you know you can get lots of awesome stuff for $10, right?  but it goes even further when you use this:

that might come in handy when you stock up on some of the brand new Bella Blvd stuff that's just arrived...
