Friendship card

Thank you to all my new visitors to this blog this week. I know most of you have come from the GCD Studios blog and I appreciate you all and your sweet words. I hope you come visit again. :)

Anyways here's a card that I just finished for the Get Sketchy challenge this week. It seems like I have all the good intention in the world to get my challenges done in the beginning of the week but somehow fell off the wagon and in the "last minute" rush again. Oh well!

Friendship isn't a big thing- it's a million little things

The bonus challenge was to not use any pattern paper. Ok at first I was game for this challenge. I figured with a bunch of rubons in my stash and a few stamps here and there, I can get this done in a snap. Boy was I wrong! I didn't realize how dependent I am on pattern paper!

At the end I was getting a little snappy at the kids who were asking me for all sorts of favors. I wasn't really annoyed at them pulling me away from my project, it was more that the project was taking longer and more challenging that I've anticipated!

But I persevered and here's my attempt to making a card without any pattern paper.

Instead of the stars in the sketch, I used butterflies and popped them out a little more with pop up dots.

Thank you for looking.

Till next time,
