I've got a Sunday Card sketch challenge up today at Turtle Soup. We're having a March Sketchathon this month so please stop by and check out all the awesome card and layout sketches.

Here's today's sketch

And here's my take on it

I really had fun with this. I spread a light coat of gesso on the background paper to lighten it up, then mixed texture paste with some orange gelato and used a stencil to apply it. After it dried, I sprayed some white color shine on to give it a bit of sparkle and then distressed the edges. Added some washi tape, twine and a hello sticker. 

So, if you like sketches please stop by Turtle Soup and play along!
