Inspirational Card Sketches 37


Hmm I REALLY don't like this card! It's not very me so I'm not quite sure what happened. All that white space!!!!

I've made it following the sketch at Inspirational Card Sketches but I've not really done the sketch justice. I'm joining them for a month's guest designer spot next month, but they might change their minds after they've seen this!

I've used a CCSR butterfly stamp and papers, silver mirri card, flat backed pearls from Quixotic Paperie - I made the swirl using one of the Bazzill templates also from Quixotic. The sentiment stamp was a freebie with a magazine.

What's not to like? It is lovely. You are too hard on yourself, but then we are our own worst critics aren't we?

I love it, black and white is always very striking. Sometimes white space can be fine! But I know what you mean.

Hi Lisa it's me again lol!! Are you as excited as me about the Totally Gorjuss DT. Keeping our fingers crossed for each other must have worked. I'm so excited I can hardly think. Surprisingly I've managed to finish some cards tonight. I made up some cards at a crop this afternoon and finished them a wee while ago. Even though I feel quite jittery inside. What am I like?? I never thought when I started blogging in late June that I would end up on a DT!!!
