Stars and Stamps blog over at Operation Write Home- daring isn't it considering I haven't posted since MARCH?! It's not that I haven't created cards- goodness knows mother's day, father's day and birthdays have all been busy card making times, it is just that I haven't had the time to post.
Soooo, here it goes...
The sketch is #179- pretty simple- I like it because I can use lots of paper!!!! This summer I am not buying another stitch of paper- I am using what I have sooo this is quite the mish mosh of paper scraps. Can you believe I used a sticker as my focal point??? I know who is this girl- right?! I rarely if ever create a card without a colored image- this was an absolute shot in the dark! But it isn't bad! AND are you ready for this? I got the sticker at The Dollar Tree ages ago!!! See, using what I have- day 1!
The throwdown is a color challenge (red, white, blue and kraft cardstock). Not a great fan of kraft cardstock, but it does have its place in the craft world- maybe I should try using it a little more... I used the blue as the base of the card and part of the rectangle on the card- I had two really busy papers and felt I needed to anchor it somehow.
This was a fun one! Stay tuned for more creations on this crafty summer vacation!
