Sketch Challenge {013}

I've been checking out cool artwork on the web lately and it seems that "cropped corners" are highly popular, so I figured that I might try my hand at them, too! It has been quite some time since we've done a Sketch Challenge and I had some time to play around in PSE today while waiting for laundry to be ready to switch over and get folded... (oh the joys of laundry)....

So ladies n gents... here's a Sketch Challenge for you. Use this basic sketch, add some patterned paper, a sentiment, something metal or sparkley and maybe a stamp that you haven't used in a while (or yet) and make a card or a layout, digi or paper.

Share the link to your artwork in the comments on this post because we all love to see everyone's take on a sketch! ** If you have trouble posting your link, try making it shorter using TinyURL. Blogger seems to have a hard time with long links in comments.

Inky Smiles!!

PS - I have an answer for Miranda's question on my last post as well as a few cards to show you later today. But first I have to help Brent with some yard work (winterizing everything) before the snow flies (yes, we're expecting a storm in the next few days... ugh) and my yard is buried.

I knew what I wanted to do with this sketch the moment you posted it, but it took me a while to get around to it ;-)

Here is my page that I did...
