Good morning, Friends! We are doing the happy dance around here as school is out for summer! Woohoo! I am also excited to bring you the newest Thursday challenge from the team at Create with Connie and Mary. This week we have a super great sketch challenge!
I LOVE this sketch! So many wonderful possibilities! You can keep it simple or dress it up. Of course I chose to keep it simple! Here's what I came up with.
I figure that men don't like a card that's too dressed up anyway. So this was perfect. I cut a piece of Epic Day designer paper and flagged the bottom. This is adhered to a piece of Basic Grey that was flagged at the bottom, too. Then I wrapped some linen thread around this three times and tied a knot. Then I popped up the panel onto a card base of Gumball Green. I stamped the fish image from By the tide in Basic Grey and sponged some Pool Party and Daffodil Delight onto it. I cut it out and popped it up onto the panel. I stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Basic Grey onto a strip of Very Vanilla and slashed the ends. This is adhered to the panel. Super super simple! I love it!!
The Create with Connie and Mary website has more inspiration! Be sure to visit and see how the designers interpreted the sketch. I do hope you will find time this week to play along! We are always inspired by what you create! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
