…that which cannot be put into words…

Sharing a card featuring the Guitarist Tia image from Some Odd Girl.

This is going out to a niece who has recently taken up ukulele and loves it, of course I couldn’t find a ukulele digi but hoping the guitar on this one passes off for one especially as this looks a bit like my niece.  As my card features a Some Odd Girl image I am entering it in the anything goes challenge on the FB fan page ~ by the way you should go check out Some Odd Girl owner and artist Kirsty Dalman on Patreon, her images there are awesome and more realistic and a bit edgy compared to the cartoony cute ones on Some Odd Girl.

To help me decorate my card I’ve played along with the bingo board at Hanna and Friends, going with the centre column.  I glittered up my die cut musical notes and picked a piece of striped DP for the rectangle element.  The colour scheme is in green as that’s my niece’s fav colour.

For my layout I’ve followed the current sketch over at Sketch Saturday.  I resized up to a 6x6 and pretty much stuck true to the sketch except for the musical notes die.  I swapped this out for the sentiment as I thought it worked better given the placement across the image.

I’m actually early with this card, dinner out on Friday night to celebrate when gifts include weird things I’d never heard of before they turned up on my niece’s wish list.  Who knew Oonies were a thing?!  Hoping she likes the card as much as those weird inflatable things!
