Here's the sketch for this week...
Looks interesting right? So hmmm... what todo with those four boxes?  Put a little image in each?  I decided to put a scene inside like a window!  But first.. how to cut out those four squares - I was lucky to find a die from Pretty Pink Posh - the Stitched Duo 3 that had exactly 4 windows to cut out!  I set that die inside another die - the Scallop Squares - and ran them through my die cut machine once to make the perfect window.

I stamped the scene from Hello Sunshine with Memento ink and colored it with Copic Markers
I chose bright colors and papers for my layout for a fresh summer look.  Bright colors always make me happy !  I stamped the sentiment on pattern paper just above the window.
The sketch has some lines down the left side of the panel... I decided to add a die cut border in hot pink.  The framed scene looked like it was floating to me so I added some stripes of Twinery Pink Sorbet Twine wrapped around the card 3 times and finished with a bow.  This anchored all the elements.
