Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

Here is my card for the Wednesday Sketch Challenge (SC) at SplitCoastStampers. This was a VERY fun layout. It was a bit of a challenge for me. I knew I wanted words in the #4 spot but the #3 spot cried for wording too. SO I opted to use a tiny cupcake there and I think it all worked.

I actually purchased a small photo album so I could put the sketch challenges in it for easier reference. I just print them out (the ones they post now print out the size of a card) and I put them in the album. Then when I'm looking for a layout I just flip through the pages. Oh my, I REALLY sound organized. LOL I am not. This New Years thing of putting things away when I'm done with them fell to the roadside the second day. I'm surprise it lasted that long!!! LOL
Some habits just don't give up without a fight!!! LOL

Anyway, back to the card. I used the Stampin' Up! "Crazy for Cupcakes" set. The words I did using the computer. The black background is the "Faux Alligator" technique. I think I posted it as "Faux Leather" on the SplitCoast site in my gallery!!! I will have to check and go back and change that. I just thought that technique would look good with these colors!! I LOVE doing that technique. It's fun to do and it's just amazing to see when it's done!!

If you have time head on over to SplitCoastStampers and give their challenges a try. There's a new one every day!!

Thanks SO much for visiting today,

I just came across your blog, and it is so inspiring. I really like making jewelry, but I have also enjoyed beautifully crafted cards. You have inspired me to start making some of my own!
