Sketch Challenge at SCS

The sketch today over at SCS was a CAS sketch.  Right up my alley.  I used a sneak peek of MFP's stamp set Spring Has Sprung.  Just a fun sketch to go with a CAS style card.  I did want to share my background paper site with you all.  Paperprintables It is a free digital paper site and I have to say it has some beautiful paper!!  Just sign up for the news letter and everytime she does new paper she sends it to you!  Quite convenient.  I have an entire file of paper to be used....eventually. :)




Another one of my favorite challenges is the One Layer Wednesday challenge put on by Susan at Simplicity.  This week we were to use an image, a border stamp and bling.  I used a stamp set I have had for a really LONG time and have never used by Amy Smyth.  I made what I call Blob Flowers.  You use the backside of a stamp for the blob, and then I used the lined image.  I am not sure this qualifies for the challenge since I used 3 images but I wanted to try my blob flowers.  As you can see, I am SO BAD at lining up borders - this particular one (again one I have never used) didn't go all the way across the card so I tried to match it up.  Shoot, it isn't straight across on the card - frustrates me so bad!  I think this time it was because my stamp image wasn't straight on the stamp block (and yes, I do use a grid block too!)  Like I said - so frustrating when my stuff is crooked.  I suppose I could of made another one --- however, I also dislike throwing away paper.  Just another personal challenge of mine.  Thanks for stopping in~

I don't see any flaws to speak of on this card. I think you simply added character to it... I really like this card !!

Vicki, both cards are so pretty. I love your blob flowers! Who makes the flower stamp? I'd love to see a little tutorial on this!
