The weeks have to stop going by so quickly! It seems like the last RetroSketch post was only a few days ago! Today’s sketch is based on a card I made back in September of last year. You can click HERE to take a peek at it. I followed my original design fairly closely but wanted to use a different color palette this time. Instead of using patterned paper for the horizontal strip I used a piece of vellum. I cut out a section of the card base and then reattached the vellum where the removed section use to be. I like the frosty dimensional look it gives the card.
I recently received my prize from Hero Arts and was itching to use the Playful Flowers and Butterflies and Floral Framelits Die and Stamp Sets! Thanks so much Hero Arts—I’m thoroughly enjoying these fabulous sets!!! I also used the Designer Woodgrain and Envelope Background stamps. The sentiment is from the Everyday Sayings stamp set by Hero Arts as well. I hope you’ll join us this week at RetroSketches! Last week we had some super fantastic submissions!!! Head on over to RetroSketches to see what Arielle, Kasia and Laurie have created this week! While you’re there you can also check out the fabulous ROCKstar and SHOUTouts!
I used the “Get Well Soon” sentiment so that I could submit this card into the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol challenge—the theme is Encouragement. I’m also going to link this up with the fun flower challenge over at the Young Crafter’s Unite Blog. I’ve recently discovered their challenge blog and the Design Team has fantastic samples that are really inspiring! You”ll have to go check them out!!!
