To be, or not to be....

So, it is no secret that I love challenges and that there are a few I particularly enjoy. When I saw that Macabre Monday was to use a Shakespeare quote, I was certain I could do it. Then I got this stamp in the mail from Stamp It Crazy and KNEW there must be a Shakespeare quote I could use with the image.

Then I went to the ETSY Inspired Challenge and found this item in the store for this week. Love the bright color with black and white and the ovals so decided to use that as inspiration. I ended up a little more pink red than orange red like the charm, but close :)

Last, but not least, the PERFECT sketch- ovals and all at Sketch Saturday.



So- what do you think? I am thrilled with how it all came together! The quote I used is "The course of true love never did run smooth" from a Midsummer's Night Dream by William Shakespeare.

Challenges:
Macabre Monday#32 - Somber Shakespeare
ETSY Inspired Challenge #82 - This item
Sketch Saturday #97 - sketch
