In my West Coast Creators Group, we got bi monthly creative challenges. The most recent was a sketch challenge. These are great to help you quickly put a card together. And this was perfect as I needed a pet sympathy card and I feel like these types of cards are best left to a simple design.
I used multiple pieces from the Wood Textures DSP stack (LOVE) to get some depth but keep the card understated. I was pleased with my end result. The dog is from the Bella and Friends stamp set. The sentiment is from the Sheltering Tree set.
