The Skaters

I checked out Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch here and thought I'd give it a whirl today. Little did I know just what I was getting myself into. Now some sketches are harder for me to get a handle on than others. Some are a breeze. And then there was this one! (gritting teeth here!) It was a real doozy for me, and that's putting it nicely. You really don't want me to tell you how many incarnations, deaths (in the garbage), stamping fits this little sketch has caused. And after all that, it still isn't exactly the sketch, but I quit!!!!!!! Arrrrrrggghhhh! Sorry Karen, I'm really not complaining. Just doing some healthy venting. yuh right.
Actually, now that I've calmed down a bit, I really like the final outcome. What do you think? Will it pass muster even if the layout isn't quite like the original?

Well, I think your card is wonderful! The layers give it so much depth and really add some pop to those cute skaters :) Thanks for sticking with the sketch - you did a fabulous job!
