JUGS Sketch Challenge 27


The JUGS challenge this week is a fun sketch by Kristin!  I combined it with the color challenge from Pals Paper Arts, although for some reason I cannot link to their site, here are the colors as well as the sketch:



I know I’ll be needing a baby card soon, so I thought rather than use these colors for Easter, which is what first came to mind, I’d use them for a baby card:


It was fun putting all the elements together, and I hope that it was okay that I added an accent color of black.  I know black is not usually a color to use on a baby card, but when I added the elephant’s black eye and tail, it seemed a natural progression.  The black eyelets in the stars and on the scallops follows the circular embellishments as well.  Here’s the inside:
