Another Entry for "Anything Goes" with Optional Sketch - Challenge #20

Somehow, I managed to get another card completed for the challenge going on over at Jackson's Digital Expressions. 

I used mainly scraps from my drawer and a Robert Jackson digital image, "Courting II." I knew I didn't have  time to color an image if I wanted to submit this by the deadline, so the silhouette image is perfect for this anniversary card.

I did use the provided sketch, but oriented my oval and rectangle differently because of the size and orientation of the image. That's the wonderful thing about sketches; they can be used as a starting point when you're stumped for layout ideas. You can use the chosen sketch as is, or as you progress with your project you may find that it works better if you rotate it, flip it, stretch it, or shrink it to accommodate the elements you're working with. Those who have been following me for awhile know that I am the QUEEN of using sketches 'cause they make my crafty life so much easier! And if you click on the "sketch" or "sketches" labels  here on my blog, you'll find lots of posts referencing them.

So the lesson for today? Sketches!!! *Need I say more?*

Well, today is Labor Day and I must go now and labor on something else!
