JAI #325 Just add a sketch

Hello there,
oh my goodness what a change  - spring sprung into life this week - I'm sure it won't last but it was so nice to be lured outside by the sun and the few flowers brave enough to be out already. The almost new season also heralds the beginning of family birthday season. The new challenge at Just Add Ink this week  - to Just Add a Sketch from Tina - was just perfect for a fun card I thought up for my nephew. Here's the sketch.

And here is what I came up with.

My nephew has grown up by the seaside and loves to go to the beach so I created a fun underwater scene. I used a jar as the circle sketch element and turned it into a fun shaker house for a fishy. I also built in a little puzzle for my nephew using the new Labeler alphabet to create the inside outside riddle.

Hope you can join us for some sketchy fun at Just Add Ink this week! Don't forget to drop past the rest of the DT for some inspiration.
