I am finding that doing sketches is a lot harder than I thought. However, that is what makes it so fun. Since participating as part of the Twisted Sketches design team....I have been a bit stumped. If you know anything about me...it is that I am not very good at following directions. Usually when I make a card it just kind of happens. A little here and a little here. So it has been such a change for me to do the sketches...especially with the twist.
This week the twist was glitter. I ended up making 4 totally different cards before I came up with onne liked. I will do a posting later of the 3 that didn't make the cut. However, the one that I loved is for my baby girl's birthday. She is going to be 2 tomorrow. A Halloween baby to boot.
I first was t hinking of making this card a Christmas card as I used my Xyron machine to put sticker glue all over red paper. I thought with the added glitter it would look like snow. However, it gave the paper a soft pink look. Then as I was looking through my embellishments I found the perfect Sentiment sticker. Princess...as my baby is definitely a princess.
Thanks for looking and I hope you try this sketch as it has turned out great. Everyone's cards are a bit different and I love that.
Have a great day.
