Go-To Sketch # 28

Happy Monday! Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my Jumping-For-Joy-PC-Cover-Post! I am glad I put a smile on your faces :)
Today I am back with a card I made for my husband's nephew who turned two. I needed a starting point, so I used Kim Kesti's Go-To Sketch #28 from the Moxie Fab World Challenge "Get Sketchy":


The "bubble" is handdrawn and "Jonas" is written by my husband who tried to imitade the font of the sentiment. The banner is from the Vinnie Pearce digi kit "Toy Box"


The little whale is from this cute Unity stamp set. I colored it with pencils and added Glossy Accents, but I wasn't able to capture its glossiness on the photo. The waves were created following Lisa Spangler's instructions from this video.

We visited our nephew yesterday and it was so cute to see my little girl with him! They hugged each other and stood there cheek to cheek! My heart was melting - but do you think we were able to take a photo? No. Three cameras, no photo...

I hope you have a fabulous Monday! Thanks for visiting, my friends!

Hugs,
Vanessa
