Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #55

February 11, 2010 at 11:01 pm 2 comments

Here’s another challenge card – my third for this week!!

This time I have used Karen Giron’s Sweet Sunday Sketch to create a birthday card featuring the Fifth Avenue Floral stamps and co-ordinating Urban Oasis DSP.

This card took me SO long to make!! Not because it was really difficult, but just because I could not get the idea in my head to form into the card I wanted it to be! I was determined to use the Fifth Ave Floral stamp set and Urban Oasis DSP, but I couldn’t get it to look right! I tried every different piece of paper from the Urban Oasis DSP, watercoloured a selection of different flowers, cut multiple colours and sizes of circles with my Circle Scissors Plus and tried to put together every combination possible and I couldn’t get it to work!! I think my mojo was definitely frustrated!! I finally left it a few times and came back after awhile, and then just decided to pick a combo and stick with it!! I’m think I’m happy with how it turned out in the end, but it definitely took me a very long time to get to that point!

My FREE Sale-a-Bration stamps just arrived, so I also was able to break open my new stamps and use one of the beautiful sentiments from Whimsical Words (love this set!).
