I found a new sketch challenge on a blog called Tuesday Morning Sketches. Sketches always get me going. Sometimes I do them pretty much exactly as laid out, sometimes I make some changes. Here was today's Tuesday Morning Sketch:
I didn't change much, just turned the sketch on its side and switched which oval was toward the front.
I was digging through the stash and found an older Basic Gray 6" x 6" paper pad. I love these for making cards because the papers are all coordinated already. This pad was from the "Archaic" set of papers from several years ago and I was still hoarding plenty of it. I made a 5"x5" square card from kraft cardstock, then layered on various patterns of the paper. Both ovals and even the paper behind the ovals are also from the same set. The photo corners came from a set of coordinating stickers.
The "Happy Bday" stamp is from a set I got just today at Michael's, from Hampton Art Stamps Ditto line. The ribbon, button and brads are all from my stash, most likely all Michael's. The brads are from Making Memories. I needed to add some more masculine birthday cards to my card supply and I think this one fills the bill.
I enjoyed playing along with the Tuesday Morning Sketch and will be back for more!
I will try to come back a little later and post some backlog/ "catch up" cards but I wanted to get this post out there. If not tonight, then tomorrow will be a 2-post day...
Have a great day, and thanks for looking!
