I'm back, and I've figured out how to add a few more blog features plus I have a new card to share with you. Determined to create my own card creations more often, I decided to play along with a few card challenges, Fab Friday and The Paper Players. Some times it's helpful to have a piece of the puzzle started for you like the colors or a sketch. They can kick start your creativity if you need a little focus.
I liked the sketch challenge at Fab Friday because I have been wanting to try the Out of the Box technique where your stamped image comes outside the edge of shape. I just wish I had let more of them pop out. What can I say it was my first attempt! Next time, there will be more.
And, I can't lie... I'm a sucker for any color combo that has Pool Party so The Paper Players was right up my alley this week. I was the girl who was so excited when Pool Party became a permanent color this year. It's my favorite!
