No stamping

So, I found a few sketch challenges that I wanted to try. I immediately had an idea of how to use some new supplies I picked up yesterday. The only strange thing for me was that I didn't want to stamp on this card. The idea I had really left no room for stamping on the front. For this card I fit a sketch I found at Di Hickman's blog and a challenge I found at Daring Cardmakers.

For Di's sketch I did a little altering because I don't generally make square cards. I still think it came out cute. After I had already glued down the squares I realized that I had forgotten the horizontal stripes. The card was missing "something" and I found a way to add the stripes. I used thin gold stickers. They didn't show up too well in the picture but it definitely added the little extra the card was missing. I also added tiny gold circle stickers at the bottom right.

I knew I wanted to try the Dot Dot Dot Dash Dash Dash theme when I saw it just because I like the look of those patterns together.

That's enough talk. Here's the card I created:

great take on the sketch! I always say to my girls that sketches are a starting point, if you follow them exactly that's ok, but you can alter them, rotate them, flip them, anything goes!
great card, TFS!
