I belong to a yahoo group for Stampin' Up demonstrators and they have a weekly challenge. This week it was to take a sketch and use it for a card using the 2011/12 In Colors. I found a sketch on a site called Sketch Frenzy Friday and decided to use that. It is a relatively simple sketch but that left room for a lot of creative interpretation :~)
I used 2 of the In Colors, Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade. The DSP is from the Paisley Petals pack and the stamp is one of the new hostess sets, Faith in Nature.
I changed the sketch up a little but not much. I stretched out the middle rectangle and centered my sentiment. As I'm looking at the card now I realize that I didn't use any ribbon, I nearly always use a bit of ribbon to finish off my cards! I guess this one didn't need any.
I kept feeling like there was something wrong with the card, besides no ribbon. I finally decided it was too blue so I trimmed it down so you could see the white card back around the edges. Now I'm happier with the card. What do you think, does that make a difference?
There has definitely been a change in weather here in middle TN. I did a lot of yard work yesterday afternoon and went out to do more today. It is so nice not to have to get up at 6:30AM to do yard work before it gets too hot to be outside. I'm not a cold weather lover though so I'm wishing these cooler days weren't going to lead to what I've heard is going to be a very cold, very long Winter. I reckon I'll survive though, my brothers have cut me lots of firewood all Spring to keep me warm! They love me :~0
