May Card Sketch #3

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

This weeks sketch has lots of potential. You could mix it up lots of ways or keep it nice and simple.

I struggled with this one initially, but then I have so much stuff on my scrap table right now it's not surprising really! Everything here is from my stash, I think the ONLY newish thing I used were the Bazzill bling brads (which I love btw).

Hi, These cards are just wonderful! Such great ideas, Love the use of the flowers on the cards. I am hoping to try my hand at making cards this summer, when I am off from work.

Hi Di

This is my first visit to your blog and my first sketch, the cards here are fantastic - great designers!!
I used Daisy Bucket papers and also some from Paper Adventure, for the flowers I decided to use ribbons instead and finished off with small buttons.
My card is on my blog:

Fabulous sketch, love the examples. Mine didn't quite work out well to the sketch but it still was the inspiration for it.
