CSSC #4 Mid-challenge Post

We're mid-way through my current Sketch Challenge, which means I've  made another card! :)

Here's the sketch:

and here's my card:

And yeah, it really does follow the sketch:

I just flipped the sketch 90 degrees so the sentiment would fit. It's still a bold sentiment stamped on pretty paper. You do remember you can stamp on patterned paper, right? I usually forget.

If I'd been thinking clearly, I'd have added some acetate and sequins to make this a shaker card, but once I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto the yellow paper, I thought I'd stop and save myself the work. I'm so lazy.

I also thought this challenge would be easy, but so far there has been only one -- ONE -- entry. You have until midnight on the 21st to enter, and you could win some of my cool duplicate stuff ... I might have a bunch.

If you do play, and I hope you will, the link-up is here at the original post for May.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stuff I used: Spellbinder's Standard Ovals, SU Feel Goods, and the following:


  1. It is on my list for today I I do forget one can stamp on pretty paper...hmmm have to give that some thought.

  2. Nope, it's a tougher challenge than you thought! For me it's challenging as I have few big sentiments. I'll see what I can do... ;) Today's bright sunshine-y card is great!

  3. I completely missed that you had a current sketch challenge going. I had been keeping an eye out for it but my eye got distracted. Now I have piles and piles of crafting goods everywhere as I'm emptying out the craft closet to make a bonfire. No. Wait. That's not it. To make room for a new beautiful hunk of furniture. I'll go check out the original post which I missed completely too.

  4. I'm so far behind I can see my own butt.
    I haven't used this sentiment yet - perfect for this sketch!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
