Stamp Scrap Diva: Get Inspired Sketch #1

So two weeks ago, my friend Ronda of Stamp Scrap Diva began her own sketch challenge "Get Inspired Sketch" and I wanted to participate but was in the midst of doing a mini Christmas album for my mother (scrapbooking takes me a very, very long time.) When I finally finished (a chorus of alleluia's were heard) and then I started on the card. A week later I am finally posting my intepretation of Ronda's wonderful sketch. I'm afraid that I'm not much of a clean and simple cardmaker so you'll have to overlook my patterned paper and extra embellishments. Incidentally, I'm finding these days, that Always Artichoke is becoming my go-to color - I am so drawn to the richness of the color and it's ability to pair with so many others.

  1. Ben...BEAUTIFUL!!! I think this is drop dead gorgeous!! I am NOT a good card maker, so to see great cards is such eye candy for me.

    I think you did a fabulous job. I would love to see your mom's album, too!! Gotta love a son that would do that!!!

  2. Another great card Ben! I'm thinking I need to check out the Always Artichoke paper, I am loving everything you do with it! I agree with Barb, would love to see the album too.

  3. Ben, I love what you did with my sketch, just amazing!!! I love the designer papers and the bling ribbon slide. It all works together so wonderfully!!! I agree with the other comments, post some pics of the album!!!! I would love to see what you did! Hope you are doing well!
