One of the hazards of blurfing is your bloggy pals follow challenges you've never heard of, but because you like your bloggy pals' styles, and you trust them to not lead you astray, you add these challenge blogs to your own Reader list so you can be "in the know" and be cool like they are, then your Reader goes out of control and you find you have a squillion challenges you want to do, but then you also realize you like to sleep, and then your world implodes. Yeah, that.
So one of my new subscriptions is to Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week's sketch didn't WOW me until I saw this card, and not only did I need to use the sketch, I needed to somehow own a punch or die to make that shape. Do you see how this quickly spirals out of control?!
So here's the current sketch:
(paper24x7 on SCS - check out her cards; they are amazing!) to determine the closest Nestabilities set or MS punch set (she may or may not own most of them). We decided on the MS Loopy Punch Around The Page duo, and she made me a few squares to play with. I used some Basic Grey papers to make the candles and two of the buttons. I didn't emboss these, as I thought they looked better un-shiny. The candle flames are Dew Drops. Now I only have 45356 Dew Drops left. ;/
I also made a second card, but it doesn't quite meet the challenge requirements, so it was just made in the spirit of the challenge:
this DTGD card, so I used it, and now it's off my desk. Unfortunately, the sketch challenge wanted the sentiment where I put washi tape (to fill in the blank space) and it was also supposed to be a birthday card. But I'm okay with that! I still used one of the loopy squares, and I kinda like the twist on the sketch.
Oh, and that loopy square is Bermuda Bay, not Turquoise. Still working on the camera and editing skillz. I thank you for your patience.
Thanks for stopping by!
