Good morning! The start of the new week brings a new sketch from From the Heart Stamps; along with the sketch there is a twist..."Gratitude Card". Here's the sketch:
Yep, I bet you are thinking that I didn't follow the sketch...or the twist.... I tried to follow the sketch; I had banners cut of all shapes, colors, and sizes but I just couldn't get the 3 vertical elements to look good. I ended up rotating my card base and changing the layout. Do you notice the graph paper background on the sketch? I even used graph paper! I loved the way it pulled in the blue from the color challenge I was incorporating. (Before I decided to rotate the card base, the background lined up perfectly with the graph paper used on the image panel. Even though my OCD kicked into overdrive when I changed it, I just went with it anyway...yes, it was tough! LOL) I've embellished simply with some blue crystals. Here's the full card:
Paper: G.P. 110 CS, Graph Paper, PTI New Leaf, Winter Wisteria, Royal Velvet, and Raspberry Fizz CS
Embellies: MAMBI Bling
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Gina Marie Designs Dies (banner, heart), Foam Tape
