Thought I'd drop back in while I am doing laundry to share a card I made a few days ago. And yes I AM always doing laundry!!! Seven people under one roof......my job is never done!!
Frosted Designs had the cutest card sketch up......you can check it out and play along HERE. I tend to shy away from card sketches unless I really like them and I think they are easy enough for me to tackle. Oddly enough, as a scrapper you would think card making would be second nature to me. It's a great way to use up scraps from layouts but usually I am pretty intimidated. I feel like my creations look like a first grader put them together compared to some of the beautiful cards I see with copic coloring and stitching......I'm still learning :)
Here is the sketch.....
I stayed pretty true to the sketch......and used some scraps from My Minds Eye "Sunny Day" collection.. It's so bright and fun and has such awesome diecuts included with the collection. I had plenty left over after layouts so they are just perfect for cards! And to me these colors just scream summer :)
The sentiment on the diecut is kinda hard to read since it is in very light blue and white. But right under the bicycle it says "Enjoy The Ride" I just added the "Hi" in thickers and thought this might be a cute card to send someone "just because" The red trimk is actually a velvet ribbon that was RAK'd to me some time last year but I can't remember exactly who from.......but I have used it a LOT!! So whoever you are....Thank you!!!! :)
All in all not a bad effort from a non card maker :) I have been on a real streak with using up my scraps and stash. So you will be seeing more cards from me I'm sure! And this line is so cute I couldn't NOT use the scraps up!! Since this feels so summery to me I have a few other challenges I am playing along with today........to the challenge blog owners....feel free to tell me if it doesn't meet challenge requirements. I realize that just because this feels summery to me other's may not see it like I do. We all know my mind is a lil "off" anyway......lol;
