Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #91


Another great sketch by Keesh for us to work with this week, and in all honesty,  I don't feel like I gave it justice with this card.  May have to give it another go before the week is over.

It's a pretty basic card, and the good part is it got assembled from my container of "scraps".  Try to remind myself to delve into this container more often as the ingoing exceeds the outgoing about 20 to1, or more...

Enough of my woes!  The rest of the Design Team has some fabulous cards for your inspiration.

Just a reminder that each week Keesh will select a winner and an honorable mention and post their cards on the Inkspirations Challenge blog.  We'd love to see your card posted as a winner, all you have to do is play along.

Sweet card Marisa & great use of goodies from your "scrap" collection. (Funny how it accumulates in such quanitities...)
Snap, we both used a butterfly for the little circle in the sketch! :)

Ahhh...polka dots and lattice embossing...2 of my fave elements! Very pretty and love the happy colors! T & I are mainly going to meet up with Barb Anders & Tammy Hershberger for lunch and then we'll hit a Hobby Lobby afterward. The town we're meeting in is pretty rural and doesn't have many scrapbooking/stamping options for shopping. :-)

You did a great job! Lots of circles, in the form of pearls, dotted paper, die cuts...great attention to detail. :) Have a wonderful weekend!

I'll tell you, without reading any of your commentary, you have a way with colors! I know you say you don't, but the cards don't lie! I love this combo and the way you've executed it...simply lovely with the addition of the texture too! Love it!

This one just made me go Awwww. I think it is the lacey doily die cut with the pretty rhinestone accented butterfly that did it. This is so very sweet. Awesome work.

Bear Hugs,
