When making cards I really enjoy picking out stamps, papers, and coordinating ribbons or other embellishments, but I often get stuck figuring out how to put it all together. That's why I love sketch challenges. They're like instructions. Sketches help me arrange my card and force me to make a plan BEFORE I start gluing. LOL. Before I discovered sketches most of my cards were one stamp in the middle of a folded piece of cardstock (plus a square of patterned paper if I was struck with "inspiration"). I'd like to think I'm making progress--thanks to help from sketches like the one Dawny P created for this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge. It was so much fun to use. I'll probably file it away to use again. Here is her sketch:
And here is my card:
In addition to the Papertake Weekly Challenge, I'm entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge where the theme this week is "Anything Goes" and in the Creative Card Crew Challenge where the theme is also "Anything Goes."
Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
