2 Sketches 4 You #48

Hi! Happy Saturday! I don't know about you, but I was so relieved when this week ended. Mostly because it was (a) the end of the quarter at school and that just means lots of grading, etc (b) we start Spring Break on Tuesday (thanks to a snow make up day on Monday) and mostly because (c) I had to finish 80 letter shirts by Friday! Whew! So ... I was more than excited to play with some paper, ink and stamps today! :-)

I started off with this week's 2 Sketches 4 You sketch #48 + bonus. You can see the sketches here. Here's my card for the original sketch ...
I had a hard time getting a good photo, but I think you can get the idea. :-) I kept my version of the sketch as a clean & simple card by creating a pattern on the card stock for the top portion of the sketch. Next time, I will plan out my dots a little better for balancing the rhinestones out better, but I am just happy I got to make some cards so I won't get too Type A on myself.

This next card was for the bonus sketch. I used some My Mind's Eye paper that I have been hoarding for quite some time on this one. Love how it turned out. The little frame is from PTI's Fillable Frames #2 and I cut off the loops when I trimmed the frame out.Well, that's all I've got for today. Will have some more of this pretty My Mind's Eye paper for you tomorrow. See you then!
