Wednesday Sketch Challenge

This weeks card layout (Sketch Challenge) over at SplitCoastStampers was a fun one. It was simple and allowed me to use smaller images. I could have used this on the "Happy Winter" set I stamped from yesterday!!

I really did enjoy this layout but I wished I had used a different image for the focal part. The original card was done using the "Trendy Tree" set and I think I just may have to copy that card. It was just too stunning.

This sketch was easy to follow, it only had a few pieces to it. I kept my background white and clean looking. I did try colored paper but it made the layers look horrible.

What was fun with this decorative paper was I could turn it over to see if I wanted the layers swapped. And I did just that. Behind the flowers I originally had the darker paper and it didn't look right so I was able to quickly change it. I didn't add any words to the front of the card so it can be used for quite a number of occasions. And this month I need several birthday cards an anniversary card and of course a Mother's Day card. I'd better get cracking on a few of these, the dates I need them are quickly approaching.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
