Twisted Thursday Challenge!


Today, I am trying a new challenge site called Twisted Thursday. Yesterday was challenge #16, this is the sketch that was posted. Would you believe that the teddy bear, stars, clouds and saying are embellies from the $store??? I couldn't resist them when I walked in there to get paper plates for a tea party- got them in pink and blue (guess what I am making this weekend???more baby cards!) With the size of the bear, had to be presented on a larger card (6x6). The yellow corner tag is from Anna Griffin and it adds just the right amount of weight on the top to keep this card balanced. I have found that in order to make a card or layout pleasing to the eye- all additions must be in a triangle, in 3's. example: tag, bear and sentiment. bear, stars, cloud. bear, sentiment, corner tag. See what I mean?

I am anxious to see what other ideas for sketches this site comes up with and will definitely be back! Now, to find some sites that offer LAYOUT Sketch Challenges...... Know any good ones?
