PageMaps sketch contest/A La Carte challenge

Becky Fleck posted a Studio Calico Sketch Contest over on the PageMaps blog. I used the sketch, but flipped it on its side and made a few adjustments. I used some fun Sassafrass Lass papers. To complete this LO, I also used some "menu items" from the A La Carte challenge #7. I actually used all six suggested menu items:
  • Use an ampersand, dollar sign, or other symbol in your title. Check! (Dollar sign)
  • Use three shades of green. Check!
  • Use a silver, gold or brass embellishment. Check! (I painted the $ gold and used two silver staples.)
  • Use a tree. Check! (At least I consider those to be trees on the one sticker under my title.)
  • Use stamping as your background. Check! (I used Kaiser Craft stamps and Versa Mark.)
  • Use book print or an actual page from a book. Check! (A piece of Jenni Bowlin book print patterned paper in the top right corner.)

I love sketches and challenges!
