I wanted to try to make a card for the latest Embellish challenge (see colors at the bottom of this post) and I have made a few different cards. I liked Kelly Marie's blog post yesterday where she said she just uses what's in front of her, so with that in mind here are my three cards, all attempting to find something fun and cute to go with the colors.
I wasn't going to do a card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge b/c this sketch really needs a die cut machine, which I don't have. But then Claire decided to throw in a free set of stamps for a random participant, so I decided to motivate and think outside the box. I love all the amazing DT cards, and mine follows the sketch, sorta... I used some die cut flowers I won through Unscripted Sketches and then cut two them apart to make the scalloped border, working with what I've got ladies. It's hard to see in this photo the layer of vellum, but it's there.
On this one I used the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch and I tried to figure out how to use my Lawn Fawn stamps (since that's the prize for Embellish!), but in the end all I managed was to use the sentiment on the inside. Simons Says Stamps is celebrating paper piercing this week and I've cut out these cute little fish.
So there you go ladies, three totally different cards all trying to use the above colors... I think I like my couch color project better, but I tried... now off to figure out how to make a brown paper bag into a card for the PTI blog hop.
