October Sketch File Time

The new sketch is up on the the Sketch File BLOG so if you enjoy using sketches in your projects, please take a look at this one.
There are some ideas for using it from Jackie, Bev and myself which we hope will help inspire you to have a go for yourself.

This is the sketch for October:
As my nephew has just passed his driving test I thought I'd try to make  "well done" card for him using the sketch.  It was also a personal challenge - could I use something other than flowers, even though I used them on the sketch?  If you visit my blog regularly, you'll know that it's always a challenge for me  not to use flowers hehe!
I twisted the sketch around and came up with this:

Papers (except the B&W striped one) by Piggy Tales, I think the B&W stripes are a Doodlebug one (he's a NUFC fan)
Oval shape is a Nesties die
Large car is Robo cut as are the puffs of smoke, the steering wheel, the little car key-ring and the traffic lights
Torn "L" plate is printed from a google image.

I couldn't resist printing off a tiny photo of Charlie to pop behind the wheel of the car!

I think I'll try making a Cword card with this sketch next - I'd love to see anything you come up with too, so please visit the Sketch File BLOGfor more info.
Thanks for visiting

I love this card, Cathy! Such a fun idea.
Your nephew will love it!!!

My brother will (hopefully) pass his driving test around Christmas ... I might lift some of the elements on your card then
