Twisted Tuesday - sketch challenge :)

Happy Tuesday!  Still raining here and while dh is resting on his last day of recooping, I'm chaperoning our 2 oldest girls to a chorus festival 3 counties away ... yay for 3 hour bus rides, one way! {Doh!}  We leave at 5 am and get back in the way dark of night but it is a huge honor to perform and return for judging on the solos and ensembles.  I wonder if I can get that big 'ol tour bus to pull through a Starbucks drive-through on the way ..... *Grin!*


Okay, my REAL reason for posting is today is the bi-weekly challenge at the Riley and Company blog with a twist!  Literally, a Twisted Tuesday sketch ;)
Here is the sketch I used for my card ...... totally not happy with it at all, but as the old adage goes, it is what it is ;)  


Our hostess at Riley and Company this week is Joy who challenged us to create a card using text paper from a book, newspaper or a type/print DSP! I chose this MME dsp with newsprint on it to match the Wagon Riley stamp, sentiment on the inside to match ;)  The gorgeous big material flower was added to mimic the sketch design and was a leftover from a card kit from my friend, LJ!   Now if you link up your cards to a gallery other than the R & Co blog, please use keyword0912.

and the inside!
And here is the sketch I followed from the Twisted Tuesday Challenge this week!  


  
We would love to see you create with this sketch -- be sure to link up your
cards to the 2TT blog here!  

Thanks for stopping by today!

Big Hugs,
Bigger Blessings!

  13. How fitting is this card with that image and the sentiment??? you always match them up perfectly!!! I'm loving this awesome color combo streak you are on. wooo hooo... you amaze me again with the refreshing colors and then, to soften it with a book's text paper... LOVE it! and don't even get started on that awesome polka dots bloom... doesn't everything look better with polka dots??! I think so.

    oh, poor you... 3 hour bus ride... I'd bribe the bus driver for a Starbuck stop. Surely, he'll want one too! :) But, what a huge honor for your daughters. You must be so proud! I'm excited for them, too, just reading about it.

    Sorry, I'm writing a book here. :)

  20. A 3 hour bus trip definitely needs coffee, but if I drank this before such a trip we'd be needing more than one toilet stop too....lol. I think your card and take on the sketch is wonderful Kelly. I love the pop of colour from the big polka dot flower and buttons, and as always Riley is adorable.

  24. I LOVE red wagons!!! I use to take my two little ones on walks every day through my old neighbourhood. My husband bought one red for them in the States and brought it to Argentina. You couldn't find them there. I was the lady with the red wagon in the neighbourhood. When we decided to come to Canada I did a garage sale and they fought for it, I was sad to sell it but couldn't bring it and here they are so popular, they are everywhere!!!. GOOD memories... LOVE your card!!!
