You will laugh at me.....you see I wanted to take part in the sketch challenge posted on Stamping 411. It's a GREAT blog that has challenges and lots of instructions. The ladies that collaborate to put this blog together are among the most talented out there. They make all their sketches seem simple, and of course, their creations are always amazing!
But, then I also saw the challenge over at Create with Connie & Mary. These 2 ladies (more stamping idols) are amazing and their creations are always spectacular.
So I was stamping last night...it was late and I was just waiting for the last of my laundry to finish up in the dryer so I could fold it up and then planned to go to bed......while I was waiting I figured I stamp my time away.
I thought I was creating my card for one challenge but then I looked and it really wasn't that close....then I looked at the other one, and I kind of missed the mark there as well. So, I guess this is a combination....or maybe it's my own. Ah, not really, 'cause this is pretty basic. Oh, well! I wanted to use that cute little set, Bella's Bloom, at least one time before it officially retires after Wednesday (but it's so cute, I think I'll keep it around for awhile!)....I earned it during SaleABration, but sadly, the set has never seen ink. So, now it has been christened! And although I began with an entirely different color pallet for this card (I had Bermuda Bay in mind!), I ended up with pinks and greens again!...Whatever!!
