Card Sketch October #2

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

It's time for the midweek card sketch! Hoping to get caught up on comments this week, got behind over the weekend due to aches and pains from riding (well more the falling off). Anyway here is this weeks card sketch! As usual you can find the digital template download here

I have to say I wasn't sure about this one at first but once I started playing around I loved it. One of the reasons I like sketches is they push you. I purposefully left the sentiment OFF the sketch and it could go numerous places. Ended up really loving this card!

Edit: sorry it got picked up for pub, obviously not just me liked it :)

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Reminisce; Cardstock: DCWV; Rub-ons: Royal(circle), DCWV (stitching), Scrapease (text); other: snowflake brad;

TIP: For rub-on sentiments, try placing them around the circles. Just rub-on one letter at a time and rotate the sheet slightly.

So wonderful to receive your newsletter and your wonderful designs shown in brilliant colors rather digital or othersise. I have to remark about the stickman on the Halloween that reminds me so much of Edward Scissorhand's designs. So awesome and unique in its structure. Your team did a fantastic job with their various takes on your card design. Keep up the good work. HUGS!!!
