Today has been such a peaceful day. We went for a walk around Mill Lake, did some shopping, came home, handled a few chores and then drum roll please.......... I had three glorious, undisturbed hours of stamping time, while my hubby watched golf. Yeah! Got to love golf! What a great day!
To make the most of my creative time I looked for some sketch challenges that would be quick and easy to do, and I came across this one from Freshly Made Sketches which fit the bill. The design has simple lines and you can do what you want with it, but the twist is to keep your project as clean-lined and fresh as possible.
This is a very special challenge for Freshly Made Sketches as it marks their 200th sketch challenge! That's quite a feat and they are really celebrating! To thank everyone who's participated in their past sketch challenges they've gathered together some of the best known companies from the crafting community as sponsors for this week's challenge. How wonderful is that?
Here's My Card:
Originally I planned to use a White on White theme for my floral birthday card, but in looking at the design team and other samples, I realized that several other crafters had already gone that route, so I opted to use white and a solid colour. I chose to work with Elegant Eggplant and Whisper White.
|I kept the inside of the card pretty simple, re-stamping the floral image and the sentiment from the Basic Butterfly set. I adhered a 1/4" strip of Elegant Eggplant card stock along the right hand side of the card.|
Stamps: Basic Butterfly and You've Got This
Inks & Markers: Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Always Artichoke, Old Olive Assortment of Blendabilities.
Card Stock: Whisper White and Elegant Eggplant
Accessories: Detail Scissors, Stylus, Paper Trimmer,
Blender Pen, Dimensionals, Basic Rhinestones and Tom Bow Glue
Thanks for dropping by today. I hope you liked my clean and simple birthday card.
