Card Sketch Week

Last week was card sketch week over at sketch support.  I just love what everyone did with the sketch!

Card Sketch #18

Aaaaaand this is what I did with it ...


"Fishing Below the Falls" by Michele EdwardsSupplies - Cardstock: American Crafts, Bazzill; Patterned paper: Scrapbook Walls; Fish brads: unknown; Embellishments: fly was made by my husband; Alphabets: Cricut (Plantin Schoolbook); Floss: DMC

Spring has sprung, and that means that the trout fishing season will soon be here! We love our visits to Sauble Falls. My husband spends hours fishing, while I watch, both him and the river. I'm always amazed when I see the trout leaping up the falls! I can never get a photo of THAT though, lol!


1. Instead of a card, I turned the sketch on its side to create a background for my two-page layout.

2. I made the strips wider, and punched a scalloped edge to further the water theme.

3. I stitched a scalloped wave pattern through some of the waves, and continued the stitching into the photographs.

  1. I really like your layout - the scallop trims remind me of the water currents. I bet that's just what you intended!
