Blogger's Challenge #160: July Sketch


Lisa gave us this sketch and when I looked at it, I was so happy cause I just knew that it would be an easy one to work with...and then...it took me all day to find time to sit down and work on it!
When I finally did, I came up with this card:

As you can see, I took some serious liberty with my creation.  Not only did I flip it, I readjusted where the focal image is!  I also just noticed the "add text here."  Sheesh...

 I got to use a brand new stamp set called, Just Believe.  I also snuck in some new Designer Series paper called Greenhouse Gala.  The colors used were Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy and Whisper White.  Thanks for taking time to look at my creation and if you would, please take time to look at what the other players created with this sketch.  You can find them listed by scrolling down on my blog and way down on the right, there's link marked Blogger's Challenge.  Have a GREAT day!

How lovely. I love the images and how you stamped them on the card base and flipped the sketch. Don't feel bad because I missed the (sentiment here) part too!

What a nice sentiment and focal image. These colors are great. Aren't you glad to have Baja Breeze back? I know I am. Great blue - green color that goes well with so much. The DSP and flower background is really nice with this. Great card.
