Hey y'all! Whew!...After almost 3 hours I seem to have my computer working again! Hopefully, it stays that way! I am not very good with computers and I had some kind of nasty virus on it, that I couldn't get off no matter what I did. I ended up restoring my computer back to an earlier date and things are better. I'm satisfied with that for now.
Anyhow, I'm sure I'm boring y'all now! lol So, on to my card for the day! ;) I've been wanting to play with Seize the Sketch challenge, so I gave it a try.
Now, I first started out trying to make a card using papers and die cuts, though it just wasn't 'me'. Then, I actually, threw in the towel and said I'm not going to play. I really still wanted to play, though was still believing this was way out of my element. However, last night I was planning to relax in bed and watch some tv, then suddenly, it hit me! I thought if I could somehow tweak the sketch to be somewhat more CAS, I could have something.
And that something, is this!
After about 2 hours (yes, 2 hours) I finished my card. Not to 'toot my own horn', but I was and still am feeling quite proud of myself! :) Okay, so I hope y'all can see the sketch?!....For the background in the sketch I used a woodgrain stamp and masked off some areas of my card, to give me somewhat a 'weathered' look. Then I added my banner, using stamps. To top off my card and add some dimension, I layered some wood veneer butterfly pieces and threw some natural twine in the mix. As well as some clear rhinestones. Lastly, my sentiment I put on the right side verses the left side how the sketch showed. So, does it work? Do you like it? Or is this just a mess? lol Would love to hear what you think! ;)
Thank you for stopping by and see y'all soon!
Enjoy your day! :)
