PP #147

I have a chart I keep with the challenges I like to enter.  I write down the word, theme, colors or draw the sketch.  I don't leave myself much room for the sketch so sometimes, if I don't go back and check it, I have done my card a little differently.  Different doesn't always mean better either.  Case in point, today's card for The Paper Players.

This was a simple layout but in drawing it, I left out the border and got the proportions of paper pieces wrong.  Missing a border is okay on my card but I like the piecing better on the sketch.

I apologize for the bad photo.  I take my pictures in front of a big window and the sun isn't up far enough yet to get good light.  I'm afraid if I wait, time will get away from me and I'll miss the deadline.

The paper is all from a SSS kit.  I love mixing papers and know I will be using this sketch a lot (using the original proportions *wink*).  In fact, I made a Sympathy card at the same time I made this one. The leaf stamp is from the same kit and the sentiment from PTI, stamped with Hero Arts wet cement.

I hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.

I actually prefer to take a quick glance at the sketch and then see what happens. Sometimes they are quite different, but it still inspires you. Love your tone-on-tone here! Hope you have a great weekend, Bobby!

This is super, even if you didn't follow the sketch exactly. I have a similar system for the challenges I follow, and have had the same thing happen before, too. It's all good if it results in a nice card, right?

Hey Bobby! First of all, thank you so much for stopping by my blog today and offering your kind words on my Gallery Idol Top 20.

Now on to your beautiful card...I think your card is perfect as is! Sketches are a great way to kick start the creative process and I'm quite sure that this card more than qualifies! I really like the size of the panel with the stamped images. It is the perfect size and creates a well balanced design.

Happy crafting!
