Sketch #21 is up at STAMPlorations and it looks like this.
And, well, my card looks like this.
It's portrait, like the sketch. There are some lines on the bottom half. There's a sentiment running along the side. Sort of.
This was one of those "life of its own" projects. Ya know those kind? Remember the lime green tinted texture paste from Exploration STAMPlorations Day 4? Well the excess made its way onto a tag. Which evolved into a tag card using two alcohol-inked acetate daisies that I originally considered using on Day 4's card! Somehow those "stems" on the tag reminded me of the lines on the bottom of Sketch 21 and thus the funky sentiment was born.
I'm actually pretty happy with the result and it's on its way to a dear friend who could use all the happy she can get.
The funky color combo from A Sprinkle of Imagination's monthly challenge was the inspiration behind this. I just love it.
BTW, the acetate is recycled packaging from my new corner chomper (yes, finally). And the "happy" was die cut from a kleenex box. Love that it's extra sturdy. If letters that skinny can possibly be sturdy...
Take a look at the gorgeous card our guest designer, Elaine, of Craft E Place made for us, as well as my teamies' creations. Then give this sketch a shot. There are prizes and a guest designer spot to be had ;)
