First one for 2015

Happy New Year everyone!
And there's no better way to start a new year than with a crafty challenge eh?
Today sees our first I {heart}sketches challenge for 2015 with From The Heart Stamps :)

Here's the sketch, and an optional inspirational photo too, should you wish to use it as well as the sketch and/or twist, which, this time, is to use textured paper...

Join in the challenge, and EVERYONE who plays will receive a $1 discount code for the store, and if you are the challenge winner, you will receive a $5 discount code to the store! :)
Remember though, you must use an image by From The Heart Stamps to be eligible, and please include a pic of the sketch in your blog post too.

Here's my first card for 2015...

This fab image is Chocolate Box Birdbrain, which i've coloured with promarkers.
I've added the word 'friend' using a word die by Clearly Besotted Stamps.
I included a bit of texture with a small piece of corrugated card stock.
