Card Sketch February #4

Wednesday, February 27, 2008

Wow, it's almost March! Feeling a little like the months are getting away from me already in 2008! Doesn't seem long since the last card sketch does it (or is it just me?). Anyway here is this weeks design, something a little different from me, but I like it! As always the digital template is available for free for a short while in my digital store.

My card this week is a little fancy for me, but I am loving it! Definitely submitting this one! But then I love it so it won't get picked up (that seems to be the way)! This is a little sneak peak at the March kit from Scrapbook Sussies, I'm their guest designer for March so I'll be sharing some creations throughout March using their kit!

"Wish" card by Di Hickman
Supplies: Scallop Cardstock: Bazzill; *Patterned Paper by Best Creations; *Flower: Heidi Swapp; *Rub-ons: Heidi Grace; *Button: Making Memories; Ribbon: Offray; Stickles (*all from Scrapbook Sussies March kit)

Have you noticed how each week a majority of the girls seem drawn to certain colors? It's very evident this week that most of us were in a blues and greens mood. I swear I had NO hand in that, none whatsoever. The only direction I give the girls is the sketch... anyone would think they were psychic!
