Marty's Sunday Sketch Challenge

For this week's challenge, Marty did this cityscape sketch:

Don't ask me why, but as I looked at it, all I could see were trees and birds, not skyscrapers and stars.


Maybe I just needed one more excuse to use my all time favorite SU set, "Lovely As A Tree."  And threw in the great tree from "Pendant Park" as well.  I added the sentiment because I plan on sending this card to a friend who is going through a rough patch.

Now, head on over to Heidi's blog to see how the rest of the Gotham City Stampers design team interpreted Marty's sketch.  I think you'll be surprised at the variety.

Nice interpretation! I LOVE that Stampin' Up set, too. So versatile. I like the one green tree. Nice focal point. Is the background printed paper or did you make that? If you made it, how did you do it?

It's definately different than the sketch, but I like your interpretation better. Love the trees, girl.
