Remember when I was scared of sketch challenges ... well, no more! I actually welcome them now to give me more ideas. Especially, if they are for A-2 size cards. Yes, I know there does seem to be a lot of sketches out there for square cards too, but I just don't send many of these for two reasons. One is I don't have an abundance of that size envelopes and two, it does cost more postage to send. Go A-2 sketches!
This week, I will be showing you one card a day for three different sketch challenges. The first one is from a blog I recently found. Their link is http://www.justusgirlschallenge.blogspot.com/ First, I want to show you the sketch.
I want you to take note of the circle and square in the middle. I normally would look at this and layer the circle on top of the square. But I had an idea to layer the square on top of the circle instead. I love the way it came out. Let me show you the card and then I will give you the details ...
The mauve color cardstock is taped to the inside back of the card, so when you open the card, you see the mauve. When I go to do the inside, I will probably take it one step further and add a smaller white panel and then put my inside sentiment on it. I often finish the inside to show you, but I just didn't think about it when I was out in my room. Oh well! How about the die cut butterfly? It is from Stampin' Up. I love, love, love it! One more thing to note, I like that I used white cardstock for the sentiment instead of a cream color. Even though, the paper has a background of a cream color, by using the white, it makes the whole thing pop.
