I’m here for you

Hello Dear Friends,

Happy Monday.  I hope it’s a fantastic week.

For my card today, I tried to keep it simple.  And I did!  I almost squeezed in some elements that would have changed the card, but I kept reminding myself “clean and simple.”  You see, I was following a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  Click FMS228 for more information.

The theme of Freshly Made Sketches is to do simple layouts that are beautiful and non-fussy.  I love the how this type of card looks, so I wanted to challenge myself this week. Since I wanted to use the Petal Pusher stamp set, I had to flip the sketch — I didn’t think I could make the bike work in the upper corner. But don’t forget — sketches can be flipped, no problem. Always use sketches as inspiration and make them work with the card. After all, we wouldn’t want the card to look ridiculous, with a bike floating in mid air …

For the banner at the bottom, I did something fun. Using a dimensional on each side of the banner, I curved it outward in the center.  A fun technique!
