Purple Pumpkin's June Sketch Challenge.

Being enthusiastic as I was this month, I wanted to take part in sketch challenges again. Have always loved working with sketches and so when Jules posted about Purple Pumpkin's June challenge on Facebook, I thought why not? (:

Here's the sketch by Debbie Burns, Purple Pumpkin:

 And here's my take:

I adore the Herrington Bone pattern and I wanted to incorporate that into this layout in the background. I drew the pattern on white cardstock and painstakingly (haha! the woes of not owning a cameo) cut out the patterns using my trusty pen knife before sticking the coloured papers behind the empty cuts. I loved how it turned out and I love the colours from Dear Lizzy's papers.
It was great fun to put this layout together and I am gearing up to craft more. I'm thinking of a mini album next!
Thanks for looking! Have a blessed weekend!
