Something is a little Different at Shopping Our Stash!!


Challenge #468 is a SKETCH and a pretty good one, hope you like it.

I made a 5 1/2 inch square card to accommodate the size of the stamp which is from House Mouse Designs and I have had it for a few years and it has never seen ink  Now seeing the green strip of grass in the picture I am really not happy with it. I might have to change it as that is all I see when I look at the card and I have an idea but as all of you know blog posts have to be done ahead but if it works out you will see the "new" and "improved" card at the end.

The Sweet sentiment was die cut three times and glued together to elevate it.

And here is the new & improved (it has my approval now) card, ready to be hand delivered to a friend. 

I added some dimensional strips to pop the layer up and added some green to the center section of the strip of white. I'm much happier with this card the sweet Monica on the Easter egg is the focal point.

Finished the inside of the card with a Happy Easter die cut and some super cute egg die cuts which it's my first time cutting them, next trip to the big shot I will dust the dies with a used dryer sheet so the little bits don't stick. 

I will be adding this to:

NBUS ~~ Challenge #37.

Thanks for stopping by today and check out the MAIN BLOG to see how the rest of the design team have interpreted the sketch.

So cute! I don't mind the green at all but sometimes all we can see is what we think is 'wrong'. I'm sure you are happier now and you're friend will love it.
