A {Music Man} Sketch 4 U 2 Try

I came across Jen Del Muro's Sketch Challenge for this week and thought I'd try it with one of my Magnolia images. The shiny guitar really shows up well here, huh? I used Crystal Effects all over it. He's on thick pop dots to make him stand away from the background--otherwise he'd get lost in all that plaid! lol. Colors here are Brocade Blue; Bashful Blue; and Kraft cardstock. Oh ya, and I used my long-retired stamp, Music Notes for the right side of the circle, and SU!'s sentiment from Sincere Salutationsset.

Wow! I am LOVING this card, Kristine!! The colors, the coloring... you are amazing! I don't have any of those Magnolias, either. Where do you get yours? I am in sad need of cuter stamps. :)

You should enter it in that Magnolia contest!!!

What a terrific card, great layers, textures and colors! I love the swiss dot bg peaking through, and the music notes to the side -- wonderfully done. the ce does really make the guitar stand out. Beautiful! I would be anxious to hear where you get your Magnolia stamps, too. I priced a few the other day, and the shipping is crazy. :) Kelly

Hey Kristine! I found your blog through a comment (or more - lol!) you left on my blog! I'm so glad you commented because it let me find your blog! This card is just adorable. I didn't even know Magnolia stamps had guy images! The lay out of this card is wonderful. I love how the photo corners frame the circle.
