Sketch Saturday Challenge #299

Happy March!

Today, I am hosting Sketch Saturday.  The sponsor this week is A Random Fan and the prize is 3 digis.  As part of my hosting responsibilities, I organized the guest designers too.  There are 2 today, Sherry the illustrator for A Random Fan and MelissaO who is on the ARF design team and we were on Mabelle's DT together.
Here is the sketch I came up with for this week:
I used 2 A Random Fan images - Autry's Art Lesson and also Monet's Bike, which I added as the picture she is painting. :D

  8. Hi Debra, I popped on over from Sketch Saturday - your sketch is fabulous and your cards are just toooo cute! Wonderful colouring and love the idea of having one image inside another image.

    I was wondering, if you don't mind, would you mind telling me what size your cards are? My normal go to size is a square and, although I've done the sketch on a square, it doesn't look right. So I thought I would be cheeky and ask what size you used.

    Many thanks in advance,

    (my blog is - in case I've done something wrong with blogger and you can't find me!)

    1. Hi Sarah, The card size is A2 - 4.25" x 5.5" [108 mm x 140 mm]. This is a common size in the US because square cards are extra postage here. Great question! Deb

  9. Love both of your cards and how it clever it was to combined two images to look like Monet is painting her picture! Fabulous!

    Hugs, Vannessa x
