Sketch Layout - Quick Cards Made Easy magazine Reader DT

I am very excited to share with you a card I made for the Sketch Layout Challenge July issue of Quick Cards Made Easy.  You can see my creation on page 37 of the magazine.

This is the sketch I was asked to follow.
Here is my card, as you can see I have gone for a vintage style and I decided to rotate the sketch once anti-clockwise. 

The topper is from Joanna Sheen, I have distressed it with a distressing tool, Vintage Photo distress ink and folded and creased it.  The background sheet is from a pad bought in The Works. 

I have stamped writing across the book using Momento Rich Cocoa ink and a Script stamp from Creata.  

The "With Love" washi tape is from my stash.  I have trimmed the corners with film from a camera, remember these proper reelsof film?!?!  There was something exciting about waiting for your photos to be developed, anyway I digress!

The whole layout reminded me of a photo that an American GI might carry around with him so I added the word Gal using Momento Rich Cocoa ink and Typerwriter key stamps from Creata.

I added a further sheet from the pad to the inside of the card.

Here it is the Quick Cards Made Easy magazine.
Creative Blessings.  x
