Happy Wednesday! It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built. This week we have a fun sketch for you:
I love sketches and had so much fun with this one that I made two cards. My first one is a bit fancier:this card I found on Pinterest a while ago:
I thought of it immediately when I saw this week's sketch. This card was actually part of the reason I got the clock face stamp. : ) I had fun rooting around in my "bits and pieces" stash. I pulled out the two smaller flowers (I had to recolor them a little to match my color scheme), the sentiment strip (I had to mask and selectively ink the sentiment to make it fit), and the fun paper stripped panel (which were scraps from paper pad I finished up last year). Since I had half a sheet of the raspberry card stock and half of the paper strip panel left after the first card, I decided to make a quick Valentine's Day card using the same sketch:
