The Sketchy Challenges DT - Kylie's Sketch

Hi there!!  Do you have a great weekend planned?  I'm hoping the weather stays fine here as my sweet little Kara has decided that she wants to learn to ride her bike without stabilisers this weekend - I think there will be lots of tears and falling off ahead in the next two days :)!  We have a new sketch up today over at The Sketchy Challenges and our incredible Kylie has designed this fortnight's sketch.  Of course I need a few Father's Day cards this month so this sketch was perfect to use as inspiration for one of them.  The papers are from BoBunny and have all been distressed and inked with walnut stain distress ink.
In replacement of the oval element in the sketch I have used a heart, cut from chipboard with a Sizzis die and instead of the diagonal paper piece I added some Tim Holtz Filmstrip Ribbon on an angle.  The stamp is a Hero Arts one stamped with Stazon onto the ribbon.

The alphas are from Webster's Pages and I've inked the edges of these with Walnut Stain Distress Ink too.

I added a key from my stash along with some distressed seam binding to keep the embellishments "manly" and to a minimum lol.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at The Sketchy Challenges!  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations.  Thanks for looking! x
