It's Your Fabulous Day!

Sometimes I look at a sketch and think, "That should be pretty easy." And I pick out a DSP and have my color scheme. And I start putting together my card so that it (somewhat) resembles the sketch. And then. And then. And then, I'm stuck. "Hmm," I think, "this isn't working out like I thought it was going to work out. Oh well. It's not at all like the sketch, but it's a nice card and I can put in on my blog." And then when I start assembling, I realize that the card needs a little somethin'-somethin' 'cause it's not quite finished. And then I get a flash of brilliance and realize, "Oh, if I add a row of buttons here, that gets me back to the sketch."

So here's the fabulous Fab Friday sketch.

And here's my card.

(Stamp Set: Hip Hip Hooray (from the Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit); Ink: Baked Brown Sugar; Card Stock: Crisp Cantaloupe, Baked Brown Sugar, Very Vanilla; DSP: Lullaby; Accessories: Window Frames Collection Framelits, Festive Piercing Template, Crumb Cake Designer Buttons, Linen Thread)
I couldn't figure out how to add washi tape, but I think the card is close enough (for government work) to the sketch!


  1. Great card. Thanks for sharing your talent and what you think are missteps.

  2. I really like the use of the buttons for the three shapes. You are right - no need for washi tape - this card is lovely as-is. Thanks for playing along with the FabFriday sketch challenge.
