Use Your Stuff - Sketch

Hello Everyone! 
It's time for a new challenge at the Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog
and today Tina has an awesome sketch for us to create with . . .

Now as you noticed ... this sketch is designed to be used in your scrapbooking ...
but hey, who says you can't use it for a card too?  
I did ... LOL ... please see below.

I love using sketches and I must admit this is the 1st time I've used a scrap booking sketch
for a card but I can guarantee you it won't be the last!  LOL
And, while I'm 'confessing' I have a 'boo-boo' to own up to!

See how the 'journaling' panel is two different paper patterns?
Well ... It was all the cute little floral pattern and I drew the lines on it (after thought)
and had the brilliant idea to stamp words on it to look like journaling ...
AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT ... I stamped it UPSIDE DOWN ... yep, silly me!
Of course I didn't have another panel of that paper to fix my 'boo-boo' so covered it with
a coordinating paper, redrew the lines and FORGOT about the words!  Uugh!

Turning a negative into a positive . . .
Other than my base card, various scraps were used to create today's card
which 'lowered the mountain' of scraps on my work table!

This is gorgeous Darlene! You're so good at mixing pretty patterned papers.
What a happy accident too, that your "boo boo" turned out so perfectly! I thought you planned it that way! The journaling lines really brought it together!!

Beautiful card! Thanks for playing at Crafting When We Can!

Wow, love the colors and design. What a beauty and eye catching details. Beautifully crafted.

Sometimes booboos make the best cards. This is beautiful! I have used scrapbook layouts for card sketches in the past, before card sketches got so popular. This really turned out fantastic, Darlene!

Donna Phelan said...

This is beautiful! I love the sketch and what you did! Gorgeous Designer Papers (both of them lol) and I adore that heart die! Fantastic!

Kathy Krug said...

Well, I thought you used the two papers on purpose. I guess you could call a happy accident. Great take on the sketch and pretty papers.

Your oops was my oh that is neat that she used two different papers there, see before I read I thought that was intentional :), so sweet and now I will be looking at scrapbook designs a little differently!
