Sketch Saturday Challenge #294

Happy Saturday!

We have a new sketch challenge today at Sketch Saturday.  Our sponsor this week is Milk Coffee and the prize is 5 digis of the winners choice.

 Alex designed this great sketch for us to use this week.
This is a Milk Coffee image Rock and Roll Superstar.  Vannessa actually chose this image to make a birthday card for her Dad, who is a fan of Elvis - well I thought that was a brilliant idea.  My niece was born on Elvis' birthday - January 8th, so this is her card this year.  Also, she is a blonde so this is a non-traditional Elvis.   
The laid the image out in Word by creating a square border.  I typed the text in the lower left hand corner then inserted the image rotating it to follow the sketch layout.  The border really helped me cut it the size I had planned for the card layout, no guessing.  I printed a couple more images to color and overlay on the background.
