To You..../Dahlhouse Designs: Wanna Sketch #5

Hello and happy Tuesday my lovelies! Did you know that Lisa Arana of Dahlhouse Designs (re)started a just for fun sketch challenge on her blog? No? Well, you do now! ☺ It's called Wanna Sketch and I based my card from the current sketch #5:

Here is the inside of my card:

and the sketch:
I decided to mirror the sketch for this card. Love these CAS sketches: they help me use up the itty bitty scraps of paper that I just can't part with! LOL! (I know there's many of you that are the same way! ☺) I wanted to use a kraft card base but it seemed a bit plain to me, so I used a zig zag embossing border on it. I went over the design with some Peeled Paint DI to make it stand out a little more. It breaks up the white space just enough, without taking away from the main panel grouping. (Well, at least that's what I think! LOL!)

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you get to play along with this fun challenge! Have a wonderful day!
