Color Week with a Sketch



Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 12.59.43 PMHello Friends,  It’s the last week of summer break and it’s raining outside…..what!  Oh well, I decided to make the best of it and go to my studio and make this week’s card for Just Us Girls. It’s color week and the colors are Red, White, and Grey.  I must say I am not in love with this card.  I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try something different when I came across the sketch below.  I don’t do well with tons of white space, right about now, I think my comfort zone is just fine. LOL

I am also linking this card up over at CAS(E) this Sketch, which is where all my inspiration began. However, my sentiment is not quite where it was suppose to be but I hope it will be okay!   Card details:  The stencil is from Heidi Swapp, the leaves and the cool double scallop die is from Verve, and the sentiment is SU.


I hope you have a terrific day and please come by and join us at JUGS!  Nanc’
