DeNami Design: Sketch Challenge #9

Well, I got up this morning with a ton of last minute details for starting the school year and ending the old with reports and notifications...and somehow, I got distracted. (really?? how did that happen? HA!) Anyway, I proceeded down the paper trail I'd left the last few days working on a submission for Doodlebug Designs, trying to tidy up, all the while contemplating the sketch challenge from DeNami Designs  for August...then before I knew it, I wasn't doing what I should be but on to a couple of new card designs. In theory, they could do for both assignments, but DD is already in...and they were intended for the DeNami Sketch  Challenge.

Card 1.

Yes...it is the lambie again...but as I told you before...I really like sheep.
For this one I cut the centers out of the dotted circles (to form a ring of dots) and backed the rings with the same size as the outer sized circle in a lighter shade of aqua, a shade good for a boy or a girl, and connected them together to come up with the general size/shape for the sketch.

Well, tomorrow the Superintendent's secretary may be on me for not having all my papers filed by today, but I found today to be quite productive!
