i love sketches by tsunamirose
My rendition:

It is always hard for me to list what papers I used on a project I am working on because my sister in law has sent me a great deal of paper and I never know for sure which stack the paper comes from.   I start mixing and matching until I get the look i want.

I love this sketch, it is very versatile, as you can see with the two different cards I have made today.   They are the same sketch, but very different.  The first one is more elegant with the vintage look paper and the pearls.  The second, a fun and festive card with the bright orange paper and the orange beads.

The biggest issues I had when working with this sketch was getting the elements right. The top one has a bit to much empty space off to the left while the bottom one may not have enough. I think it really is what the user wants when they create, and I have learned that we are our own worst critics.

I do encourage you all to come over for a visit and check out her sketches by joining our Facebook group!
