Default Sketch Challenge 330

Keywords: SC330 No spaces between letters and numbers, put a comma followed by a space between keywords. The keywords are all you need to have your card show up in the challenge gallery, having it in the keyword line covers more searches. Posting to this thread is not mandatory to play!

No due date for posting your card to any weekly challenge.
*****************************
What is the Sketch Challenge: in Andrea’s words from SC08 (Andrea is the founder of the challenge): "You take the sketch I provided and use any stamp set, any accessory, and any kind of paper to make a card. So all of the cards have the same basic layout, but they all look very different."
-It is fine to flip the sketch, change panel sizes, shapes, card size and border as you wish (unless stated in the write up for the week), a little tweaking is fine but let’s see those main elements of the posted layout please.
(The numbers and colors are requested from players so it's easier to read the layout, it means nothing towards colors used or number of borders when creating your project.)

Master Thread Find uploading and linking directions, files and links of past challenges.
Email Notification thread link
SCSketches Gallery (Layouts starting at SC01 to the present week.)

*************************
This Week


I found this layout through the Archivers store and thought it would make a nice quick layout.

Thanks Dianne - she made an example for us this week.
