Cute Chick Card for Sketch Challenge

sketch challengeMy goodness, where did my card making mojo go? I swear it took me two hours to create a couple of cards for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge and it felt like  a real struggle just to produce these. I don’t know if was the sketch, my paper choice, the Easter theme (you know me, I’m never one to be that much ahead of the game) or the fact that I had to first clean a spot in my craft room just to get started. Ugh!

As I gave my crafting table a clearing, I came upon some shimmery chick paper on top of a pile of I-don’t-know-what-to-do-with-this stuff, so I decided to chop it up and make some cards. I don’t know where this stock came from or how I might ever use it, so I created some cute Easter greeting cards way ahead of schedule.

For the first card (pictured below), I stuck to the sketch, but it seemed kind of blah to me, so I created a second one (top card) with a little spin. I think number two is cuter than the first, but both are very “bright.” Although you can’t see it in the photos, a little shimmer paper goes a long way. *grin*

  1. That is such cute paper – so perfect with the sketch!! I love both of them (but probably the top one a bit better!) Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
