Hi Everyone! I hope that you are as inspired as I was with this week's Sketch Girl Sketch! As you will come to see, I am usually a clean and simple card maker. I admire those who can throw everything but the kitchen sink at a card and have it come away looking all shabby chic. But that's not me (I think it's the scientist in me; anything but straight lines have me hyperventilating. I have on occassion been known to tilt an image; but that's as crazy as I get)
Anyway, this was a fun card to make. I have been in a Kraft mood lately, which happens, so I started by finding some colored cardstock to use as a base. I grabbed green, which really isn't earth shattering for me, but I wanted a soothing color as a base. A little tone on tone polka dots and a few swirls and the base was complete. I could completely avoid the kraft, but it does kind of fade back with the distressed panel. The heart I die cut at Archiver's (left over from a valentine's project), and the sentiment is from the heartfelt sympathy: pet set from PTI (the set was only $5 people). This is a card I never hope to have a need for. I want to add a paw to the sentiment (and I actually have) but I am out of time this evening so you can imagine it for yourself.
Can't wait to see what all my other Sketch girls and YOU come up with! Oh and if you go to the Sketch Girl Blog and become a follower, then you could be entered to win one of 3 stamps sets! Woo hoo!
