Little Claire challenge 6 - my sketch!

Time for our new challenge at Little Claire and a bit of a first for me - for this fortnight our challenge is a sketch... my sketch!  Obviously I've made up my own layouts before but I've never made one into a sketch.  It's very simple so I'm hoping some of you will join in... will be a bit sad if no one uses it lol.  I need to work on 'prettying up' my sketches before I make another one I think.  Anyway, here's my card...



I've used the Oh Man! set of stamps, and I've paper pieced the chair and footstool and coloured the rest with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  The papers are MME, with dark brown Papermill cardstock.  Sentiment is from the same stamp set, buttons from my stash.

Here's my sketch

As you can see, I've jigged things around a bit for my card - even when it's my own sketch I don't seem to be able to follow it perfectly lol!  I have to say a HUGE thank you to the Little Claire DT girls who've done a fabby job with it :o)

I'm entering my card for the challenge at Cute Card Thursday, where they want you to follow a sketch - either an old one from their blog, one from another challenge or one you create yourself.
