Well, another week of 2009 has come and gone and with last weeks challenge at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge we should all have a good start on our Christmas cards for this year, right?
Anyways, this week's challenge at Stamptacular is a card sketch! I LOVE sketches but this one was particularly challenging for me because our sponsor, Papirloftet, generously supplied each of the Design Team members with a kit full of goodies. The kit was fabulous and contained many different things such brads, flowers, charms, ribbon, prints and even cardstock but I was completely out of my element. I had never used the darling prints that they included and everything seemed to have a vintage feel to me. If you know anything about me...you KNOW I have no clue what to do with vintage! LOL
So...I would pick the package up almost every single day since I've received it wondering what in the world I could create with it...
Although, not my favorite card I've ever made I do like it. I really enjoyed using the flowers and think that placing them the way I did, instead of just using ribbon or cardstock for the band in the sketch, turned out to be a nice effect. You can't really tell but I handstamped all the cardstock myself for an added detail hoping that it would give it an even more "antique" look.
What do you think? I know, I know...stick to my own style! LOL
Thanks for looking!
