One of the sketches I ponder each week is the Wednesday Card Sketch challenge at Splitcoast. I subscribe to the email notification for their sketch challenge thread so it lands in my InBox each week as a reminder, and that's so helpful. We all know I need more challenges to play. :)
Here's this week's SCS sketch challenge:
and my card:
My MME Milo 6x6 paper pack was still out on my desk, so I chose a few paper remnants to make this. The sentiment was stamped in Hero Arts Navy ink onto a white remnant and trimmed to fit.
There's not really much else to say - well, except that I think the diagonal stripes should go in the other direction. ;/
I'm also entering this in the current CAS-ology challenge:
and the current Male Room challenge of New Beginnings (I think a birthday is a new beginning).
Now my Milo paper has been put away, and I've played a few more challenges. I'll be back shortly. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
I like all the patterns you put together; the dots just look great with all the lines and diamonds. Great way to soften things a bit.ReplyDelete
The stripes are bugging you!ReplyDelete
I saw this yesterday but a shiny thing distracted me. I like the muted colors and the patterns. Mucho Excelante!ReplyDelete
