Mo's Digital Challenge -- A Sketch

This is my second post today.  Please be sure to scroll down for my first post which includes a little idea for easy-peasy gifts.

We've had so many fantastic ideas at Mo's Digital Challenge lately! Always fun to see what comes each week.  This week we have a fun sketch by Cathy, our hostess.   I like using sketches now and then to just go crazy with a theme and colors.  After sub-zero temperatures and lots of snow a couple of weeks ago, we've been thrust into balmy weather with highs at 70 and above.  Of course with weather like this our thoughts will turn to more outdoor-type activities, like the BEACH!

This image just might get you in the mood for a trip to the shore of your favorite ocean, lake or watering hole.  I had colored (with Copics) her last summer, but ran out of time to make a card before the leaves started turning.  I'm not one to use a lot of orange, but it really works for this project. In my scrap box I had these wonderful sunny pieces and added embellies to match.  It seems that this is a good time to use up stray materials and scraps.  Sort of a spring cleaning!  I'd much rather do this kind of spring cleaning than cleaning closets and the refrigerator!!

Here is Cathy's sketch.  I turned it sideways to accomodate the image.  Either way it is loads of fun!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Your time visiting here is very much appreciated.  Be sure to visit Mo's Digital Challenge to see the DT's amazing projects.
