There's a new sketch challenge in town but unfortunately I ran out of time last week to participate in the kick off of retro sketches, so I set to work early for sketch #2.
I think my mojo is on spring break because I had a hard time in my stamp room this weekend. My table is littered with cards that I started and cast aside because something wasn't right. Even this card ended up being something other than what I had originally envisioned, but I was determined to make a card with this awesome sketch.
I was sure that the springy-color challenge at The Paper Players was just the thing to get my crafty juices flowing. The colors are fabby!
I think I wanted to add a sentiment on this card, but I forgot. This is sometimes a good thing because this card can become whatever I want when the occasion arises!
And thanks to everyone who emailed me with tips, tricks, and even a video tutorial (you know who you are!) on creating bows. I'm going to try out my newly-learned skills soon! I hope I'm not a hopeless case. Donna, my super-talented upline has shown me on many occasions how to tie a bow, but I think I must be all thumbs because they never look as good as hers!
