WSC # 37 - You're My Hero

Can you believe it's time for the 37th sketch of the year from MFT? As I get older, I swear every year seems to go by faster than the one before it!

We have a great sketch for you this week, I went very clean and simple with my card and I adore the results. A good sketch is a wonderful thing!

This is à la modes - Blue Without You. She pairs perfectly with the new Dog Tag Die-namic (who can resist this one? it's only $3.50!) I coloured her with Copics and paper pieced the star and her hand. I added the dog tag element with eyelets and a cool pin I rescued from a tag on a jacket Shan bought, love little found trinkets like that!

The sketch calls for two background pieces behind the layers but I simplified by just embossing a portion of my card to keep with the clean and simple look.

Inside my card I repeated the same layout. This card is going to Shanan who really is my hero every day (you can awwww or roll your eyes now!)
