This was the first time I’ve used a sketch as inspiration for my own card. I usually have a basic plan of what I want a card to look like, and then browse though my supplies and use whatever strikes my fancy at the time. It was fun to have the “constraint” of a sketch to work with; it helped me to choose my elements more carefully which resulted in a nicer end result. I will definitely work with sketches more often.
