InStyle Stamps Sketch Challenge - CAS8

Wow, can I just say I am loving the weather we have been having these last few days!  Temperatures in the 70's and sunny ~ what more could you ask for?  

Being the first Friday of the month, it is time for a sketch challenge at InStyle Stamps.  In the past, the sketch and color challenges were posted on the Club Anime blog, but from now on all challenges will be posted on the InStyle Stamps blog so they are all in one place and easy to keep track of.  

Here is this months sketch:  

I rotated the sketch to fit the image I wanted to use and came up with this:

For my card today I used Jacob ~ doesn't he just look like the sweetest little kid ever?  I colored him to look like my youngest son and since he has a backpack on, I decided to use some papers from the Grade School stack. I don't have a star border punch (gasp), so I had to borrow my daughter's American Girl border punch.  It's hard to see in the picture, but I made his shirt plaid with a light blue and pale yellow.

Take a few minutes to visit the rest of the Design Team and see how they interpreted this sketch (the links are on the left side of my blog).  Please join in our sketch challenge this month, we'd love to have you!  Head on over to the  InStyle Stamps blog for further details.
