WISHING YOU ALL A HAPPY & HEALTHY 2015!
I'm starting out the New Year making a card 'just for fun' ... no DT commitment or anything like that ... just being 'creative' ... and it's a sentiment I'd like to extend to YOU!!
When I first started making cards (all those years ago) I needed help getting started so I turned to 'sketch challenges'. Today I don't always have the time to take part in sketch challenges but I was introduced to a 'new to me' sketch challenge and just had to play along!
The challenge blog I'm referring to is CARDABILITIES where they supply the sketch to use as the basis of your card creation. They also have a blog called SKETCHABILITIES which is directed more towards the scrapbookers and they supply a sketch that you can use for your layouts.
Here is the sketch for the current challenge and the basis for my card . . .
I chose to turn my card horizontally vs vertical but that's okay!!
You can still see the 'sketch' in my design and that's what's important!
I've also been using up some holiday scraps (boy that mountain sure grows during the holidays doesn't it!!) so the circle panels are from various holiday paper packs.
I hope you're starting out your new year in a fun way too!
