Frosted Designs Card Sketch 21

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 job is never done!!  

Frosted Designs had the cutest card sketch 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 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";

Thanks for looking and visiting with me today!! And don't forget, the new challenge for Lasting memories went up today AND the list of blog hop winners is up as well! Check the main blog and the individual blogs to see if you were a winner.  Mine went up late but is posted now:)
