Beate's Sketch Challenge


Beate has such great sketch challenges, this week it was a folder card. I must admit I cheated, I have a sizzix folder die and used that and while I had the cuttlebug out I just had to cue a giant flower. In my defense I did have to modify it somewhat and squeek it a little here and there. The stamps are from a TAC set called Sweettweet, and the sentiment is Stampin Up. I colored them in using my copic markets.
I just got a new camera and I have noticed that some of my photos lately are not the sharpest, I apologize and will be working on my photography skills.

Very pretty Flossie! I attempted making the folder card three times today but could not get the cut right so I gave up. I did not think to pull out my sizzix folder so I will be doing that! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

Great card, Flossie, and I'm smacking myself in the head too, why didn't I thing of using the file folder Sizzix for a card? That's why I love your blog, I learn soo much.

Don't be too hard on yourself, I went to M's on Sunday, and bought lots of paper, I don't need it either. Paper hoarders, UNITE!!!
