I love working with these bright colors and the rock n roll stamping worked well on the fish!

I really like the sketches on this blog but haven’t gotten around to using any of them yet.  They are having a giveaway HERE.  I’m going to see how many layouts I can do this month with their sketches.  I challenge you to do the same!  I’ve been in card mode lately so maybe this is what I need to get some pages done again.

Blog Candy Alert!

No embellishments!

Do you know how hard it is to make a card with no embellishments?  Well, actually it’s quite quick and simple but it’s so much more fun to add dimension and sparkle!  Plus all the white space, oh my!  But I have to say it works!  The no embellishment challenge from ABC and the sketch from Clean and Simple worked beautifully together this week.  I may use this again with other variations.  It’s a nice flat card that that will mail nicely and it was very quick and easy to make.  The colors were also a first for me from the Cute Card Thursday, combining teal and red.  Again, I like it and something I wouldn’t normally put together!

Products used: Graphic Flowers stamp set by Art Warehouse, CTMH inks (Ocean & Holiday Red), CTMH Thoughtful Seasons stamp set.

Challenges:
Fall To Layout #54 – sketch
ABC Challenge – zero embellishments
Cute Card Thursday Challenge #72 – Tealy Good
