New Sketch!

I created this sketch last night when playing around with cardstock. My first trial run got trashed, because I just could NOT make the colors work. I tried Guava, Teal, and Rust - and it just wasn't coming together.

So, I went in a totally different direction. A friend had mailed me a TON of papers, and when I saw these, I knew I had to try this diagonal sketch again. I love this designer paper! The colors are just wonderful, and this sketch came together so easily. This designer paper is from Basic Grey's Lily Kate collection - so pretty!

To fill in the space in between the diagonals, I decided to go with some more Dew Drops. I'm just in love with Dew Drops. Now I want - no.... NEED - all the colors of Dew Drops. :-) Can you guess what I did with my birthday money??? Hee hee hee.

How about a challenge? Using my sketch, create your own card. Don't forget to leave a comment below so I can see your card. Happy Stamping!
