Christmas birthday in May???

When I saw the sketch challenge last night, it looked like it was going to be a hard one. Whenever I feel a little stumped I always pull out my two favorite sets- Natural Beauty and Embrace Life. I don't know why I chose the colors I did. I really should have known better. Every time that I use red and green together on a card it ALWAYS ends up looking like a Christmas card lol! Oh well, I tried right???


My CardSupplies- Stamps- Embrace Life, Natural beauty, Full of life. Paper- Handsome hunter, white, ruby red. Ink-Black stazon. Accessories- SU markers in Garden green and Ruby red, Prisma color markers, rhinestones, stardust gelly roll pen, corner punch, swiss dots embossing folder.

Yesterday while the girls were outside playing with their friends I made some more cards that were like the one that I made for the challenge. I wanted to experiment with colors a little bit so I did one is So saffron, Pretty in pink and Pale plum.

Supplies: Stamps- Essence of love, Full of life. Paper- So saffron, Pretty in pink, Sage shadow, Pale plum, white, chocolate chip. Ink- So saffron, Pretty in pink, Sage shadow, Pale plum, white, chocolate chip. Accessories- make up sponge, cloud template, dimensionals, corner punch.

Jessica,

What you did with the sketch challenge is wonderful! You've left a few comments on my cards on SCS, and that's how I found your blog. I love your work. I'll be back to visit regularly.
