S2GSC33 - Outstanding In Your Field!

It's time once again for the Shirley's 2 Girls Twisted Thursday sketch challenge. I hope you're all ready for some fun, fun, fun!!

Here's the sketch for this week, and the twist is to use WIRE in your design!
The image that I got to work with this week is a brand new digital image called "Scarecrow (SG 310)." I colored the image with my Copic markers, and then gave him an "autumn glow" with my Lyras and Gamsol. I'm thrilled with the end result. I had a blast with this layout. Note the curly wire attached to the sentiment. I nearly panicked when I saw that the twist was to use wire - I didn't own any wire. That is, until I went to the rubber stamp show this past weekend. I was wandering around the show and happened upon this cute little box of curly wire embellies - quickly whipped out my $5 and bought them! Easy peasy!!

I know you all want to play along with us this week - you know you do, too. Well, all you have to do is create a card using this week's sketch (don't forget the twist!), and then click on the blinkie below - that'll take you right to Mr. Linky (as well as all the rules and regulations of playing along) where you need to upload a link to your project. Oh, and if you want some amazing and instant-gratification digi images - check out the Digi Images section in the Shirley's 2 Girls store. Cute stuff, I tell ya!!
