Today is also the day that I take part in the Reject Blog Hop for the recent Paper Crafts "Go To Sketches" call. Tee hee! That title makes me laugh a little, although that is exactly what the cards are that didn't get picked up. Here is the thing...they had like 2700 something submissions for this call, so I didn't expect too much. I did get one card picked up for the issue, and that definitely makes me very happy!! So, yay!! But, this little card didn't make the cut for sketch #6. It isn't the most exciting card in the world, so I can see why. But, I still think it is pretty cute!! This card also fits the "Less is More" Week 5 challenge: to use pastel colors. Here is the card!
"I'm Here For You, Always" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics (kraft, light purple) & Papertrey Ink (white)
Paper: Glitz Design (Hoopla: Pipework)
Stamps/Scallop Die: Papertrey Ink (YOF: Gladiolus set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: turquoise)
Chipboard: American Crafts (glitter thickers)
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft
Instructions: Fold white cardstock in half to make card base. Cut a scalloped border to aqua patterned paper, and adhere to the right side of a kraft cardstock block. Adhere an 1/8-inch light purple cardstock strip over the seam, and adhere the entire block to the card front. Stamp the sentiment to the kraft cardstock, and frame with glittered brackets. Accent each bracket side with jewels to finish.
I do have a few more cards that I made for the call, but I think I will share them sporadically. I might hold a few of them back for future submissions...so we shall see! I better get going for now, so have a great evening!! ♥♥♥
