Stamp: Papertrey 'Birthday Basics'. Cardstock: Chocolate chip, unknown source DP. Ink: Versamark. Accessories: organdy flower, white detail EP.
Tuesday Morning Sketch #31 is the inspiration for this card. In my opinion, the true measure of a sketch is how well it stands up to the bare bones (better known as Clean and Simple) approach and Melissa's sketches definitely shine in this style! The last two cards I've made with her sketches have been straight from the layout with no extra layers or mats; I really like how they've turned out.
Many thanks going out to my amazing Secret Sis in monkeymama's (Angela of Just Monkeying Around) Card Kit Swap -- she not only sent me this fun DP, but also these amazing organdy flowers; I used a punched circle from the coordinating DP and a page pebble to create the center:
More inspiration from this card comes from Opus Gluei challenge #40: Soup to Nuts. The Opus Gluei Poobahs encouraged us to complete a project OR start something new. Right now I have no major project anywhere close to completion (unless you count the maybe 50% complete organization of the craft area), so I struggled for a quite some time trying to figure out how to incorporate 'starting something new' with my overall 'downsizing' goal. Finally, it hit me -- since I always seem to like my CAS creations most, I should start making them on a regular basis. Say at least once a week? So, Jana and Rosemary, my new project is to create more CAS projects like this one!
As far as the craft room organization, that may indeed take the whole year!
