You are a Blessing

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Hi Friends! If you've visited my blog before, you have probably noticed that I tend to make cards with lots of layers, distressing, and embellishments. I love beautiful CAS cards, but I quickly meet my Waterloo any time I try to make one. So, normally, I just avoid making them, but I can't do that this time because the Week 5 Viva la Verve Sketch Challenge is a CAS sketch. I've already made all the other cards for the challenge this month, so I'm not not quitting now. And, besides, it IS a challenge, right? Well, I was definitely challenged!
This one didn't turn out too bad, but you should see my first attempt. On second thought, you shouldn't see it. It took me three hours to make and it turned out awful! The final version took all of 10 minutes to make, and it even looks presentable. I just stamped flowers all over the card, leaving an area blank for the sentiment. Then, using my scoreboard, I scored three lines across the top left edge of the card.

The inside is blank except for a few stamped flowers.

Gotta run...Thanks for stopping by!

Practice makes perfect :) You must have learned plenty in that first attempt! I'm finding CAS a lot of fun the more I play around with it. Love these colours!
