Upside Down You're Turning Me...

Ha ha I don't know what made me think of that fab 70's song except for the fact that I did kinda flip this AWESOME sketch by Taylor Van Bruggen upside down for this particular card :)

Here's the sketch, TESC86, so you can see what I'm talking about:And here's my card:I used this cute {Jena Baking} digital image from Little Paper Shop as the main panel, and then inverted not only the sketch upside down, but the scallops, too to make my little awning. Do you ever have an idea that comes to you literally in the middle of the night? Funny, right? That's what happened to me last night and I got up first thing this morning to create this card. In addition to the scallops and main image for this sketch, I then added three brads in the place they'd be according to the sketch and used the middle one to "hang" my little cupcake sign (words from the {Sugar} set, also by Little Paper Shop).

Thanks for stopping by this evening! I know this is a SUPER liberal take on this fun sketch and it's a bit more difficult to "see" the sketch in this card but hey, when the ideas call, you answer them when ya can, right? Not to mention, I had the BEST time making this card and LOVE Taylor's sketches, so all in all it was a fun morning!

Well, I'll be back with another Little Paper Shop post tomorrow morning. Good night, friends!
