Sketchbook Saturday 105

Saturday, September 14, 2013

I'm so excited to share this card today.  I recently received an email from the amazing and talented Chupa and she asked me to be a guest designer for her newest Sketchbook Saturday sketch!  Woo Hoo!  I couldn't possibly say no.  Chupa makes the most beautiful cards and I admire her talent immensely.  And I share the guest honors today with Wanda Cullen, another crafter who makes my jaw drop on a routine basis when I see her cards!  So without further ado, here's my card and the sketch.



The colors from Pals Paper Arts were perfect for what I had in mind with this card.  I found some October Afternoon washi tape that matched the colors pretty closely and used that at the bottom of my card.  Then I randomly stamped a bunch of background images on some card stock then layered these pretty flowers on top.  I've been randomly stamping background images a lot lately and I've got to say that I really like how it makes the card just a bit more interesting.  At least to me anyway!  I did use a little license and reversed the image and the sentiment because I'm a left to right kind of girl, I guess!


So, before I go I'll send a big cyber hug to Chupa for thinking that my work was good enough to warrant a guest spot on her sketch challenge.  I'm in good company over there and I'm grateful to be able to participate!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, wow, this is a stunning card, Jen! I'm loving all the textured BG stamps you used (right now I can't seem to quit using SU's Gorgeous Grunge set for that reason)! Thanks for the kind words...it really is an honor to be asked to be a guest designer!
