Man, it's been one of those months! I have been dying to play along with this months Sketch For You To Try and have so many ideas running through my head for the sketch, but before I knew it - it's almost the end of the month! Seriously? What the heck happened to January!? So last night I decided I better get it in gear and put at least one of those ideas to paper! I pulled out a couple of the Verve stamps I had in mind and got to work.
It's a hybrid card, using printed digi papers from the Adorableness kit by Traci Reed (Sweet Shoppe). I took a few creative liberties with the sketch - I rotated it 90 degrees and moved the embellishment thingy (flower) over. I don't think Jen will mind. As for the stamps, I used the Framed Wishes (clear embossed) frame stamp along with a sentiment from Feel the Sun that seemed appropriate with that awesome flower that I really wanted to use because it matched so well with the paper. When I finished, something was missing, so I added the swirled rhinestone sticker thing. It still seems like something is missing to me, like I wish I had added some stitching or something, but it'll do.
Here's a look at Jen's original sketch (remember, I rotated it):
You still have time to play along with the sketch this month - it's the first sketch of the year and if you play along every month this year, you'll have a chance to win a ginormous and fabulous prize! But then again, maybe you shouldn't - because then that would just decrease my chances of winning!! LOL.
