I really liked this sketch. I kept the main layout basically as it is, just changed up the shapes and replaced the ribbon with a Prima embellishment and added pearls and bling. The lace along the right side was white, which really threw off the whole effect, so I 'dyed' it with some Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I simply rubbed the stamp pad on my craft mat, spritzed with water, and dipped and scrunched the lace in it until it was the shade I wanted it....then let it set over night. I'm usually way too impatient to wait for it to dry, but it was just after midnight, and I was TIRED, so I actually made myself stop. My back was aching, and the stress in my shoulders said ENOUGH! This morning I finished putting the elements together on the card, and Voila! Who knows, I may even have time to make another. Maybe this time I will add to the challenge and make a clean and simple card to finish out the week! We'll see!
Here is my card for the challenge:
Thanks for visiting. Enjoy this beautiful Sunday - This is the day the Lord has made....let us be glad and rejoice!!!
