Mo Meets Friday Sketchers


As always when I get stuck putting a card together I head over to the sketch challenge blogs looking for inspiration. I've used this week's fabulous sketch from Friday Sketchers here but I've skewed one of the layers - you all know I'm a little twisted right - LOL.
This gorgeous image is Mo Manning's "I Wuv U" and you can find it HERE. There's also a curly haired version if you prefer.

I used a  mix of DP's from October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket, they worked so well together. And if you're wondering how I did the frame around my image - I cut my CS using the same size nestie as I used on the image. I then spliced it in 2 halves on the diagonal and glued it in place - easy! The sentiment is from Tickled Pink Stamps.

Wow, this is sooo cute Debbie. Can I ask how you cut the nestie with the image on so the little boys leg sticks in the air? Bit baffled on that one :)
