Today features three cards that go a little beyond the sketch. Christina, Katrina, and Melissa all created cards that add a few adjustments or extras to the sketch.

Valentine Card by Christina Hoffman
Supply list - Patterned cardstock: KI Memories; Jewels: The Paper Studio; Ink: Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink (Chestnut Roan); Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L; Floss: DMC
Variation #1 - I used four smaller circles on my card instead of the three larger circles on the sketch.
Variation #2 - Since I had little Valentine messages on each circle I didn't add the message as suggested on the sketch.
Variation #3 - I used a mix of jewels and hearts for the smaller circles on the sketch. I also added some detail to the card with hand-stitching around two of the circles.
Variation #4 - Instead of a solid background I used two coordinating patterned papers.
Be Funky by Katrina Hunt
Supply list - Cardstock: We R Memory Keepers; Patterned paper and sticker: Echo Park; Stamp: Unity Stamp Co.; Adhesive: Scotch and Scrapbook Adhesives pop dots; Other: buttons
This is such a fun sketch to work with, it has endless possibilities! I wasn’t quite in a “snowy” mood yet, so I decided to leave out the middle circle and snowflake. I replaced it with a cardstock sticker from the “Life is Good” collection from Echo Park that reminded me of a flower. I used various sizes of buttons and just arranged them around until I liked how they looked. I stamped my sentiment and then adhered it to pattern paper and trimmed out around the outline.
I am a person that thinks nothing is complete without a little ribbon, twine, etc! So, I added the ribbon on the side with the bow, an easy addition to the sketch!
Hi by Melissa Elsner

I rarely like to follow the rules and such is the case with this sketch. For the most part, I did use the same measurements and ideas with the circles - even the location of the sentiment, but to take it a step further in my rebellious ways, I pushed the circles off the edge. The colors of the papers from October Afternoon work way too perfectly with the kraft background. I love the white space on this.•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
