I don't know why but I obsessed over this card for way too long. I finally just decided to post it and move on.
This is my somewhat liberal take on the Deconstructed Sketch using colors from the Festive Friday challenge. I wanted to use stamps to mimic the flags in the sketch so I grabbed some of my favorite textural stamps, added the sentiment, some washi and sequins and thought I was done. But then I realized that I missed the little circle element on the sketch so I went back and added a snowflake. I still wasn't happy though. There wasn't really anything festive about my card, an essential element of the Festive Friday challenge. So I put it aside and went to bed.
By the time I got back in my stamp room I had spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about this card. In order to add the festive I pulled apart a bunch of stuff, added a Christmas tree shape and a star. I'm still not entirely happy with it, but it is what it is!
Lots of rain yesterday (yuck). The weeds are going crazy in the garden and I've no time to pull them out. Should be a fun adventure out there when the sun comes out! Thanks for stopping by!
