First up is 365 Cards Challenge 147: Scraplift Saturday
Specifically, we were to select a card previously done by one of the design team members and scraplift. I chose a former Sketchy Sunday example that Amy did back on June 28th (Bowlin Distressed Flower) I love that card! The text & flower....
My card incorporates the lyrics of Eddie Vedder's "No Ceiling" off the soundtrack to "Into the Wild" When I watched that movie, before it was done, I leaned over to Harvey and said "I'm buying this sountrack!" I did, and it's been a favourite for 2 years. The last line of the song...this love has got no ceiling... clearly shows at the bottom of the card. I think this would be a nice one for a spouse or a dear friend. :)
Next, comes an entry into 3 challenges, which is the most I've ever managed to do (I can't imagine fitting more in... how stressful!)
365 Cards Challenge 146: Mirror Me
The challenge was to create symmetry on your card. Seemingly simple, this was not an easy task for me. I am not one of those people with identical candlestick holders on either side of her mantel... I like to group things. I like things slightly off kilter, with movement and balance created without directly symmetrical proportions. So I cheated on this card. :P
The main sketch and layout are symmetrical, but I couldn't resist cropping the photo so my daughter (isn't she gorgeous! - this was her wedding day) wasn't centered. I also couldn't resist the butterfly rub-on. LOL Trust me, this is as symmetrical as I get!
This card is also entered into Unscripted Sketches: Sketch It Saturdays # 16
I liked their sketch, and while I don't have the correct Nestabilities die to do that fancy scrolled thingy - I do have imagination, and used chipboard brackets to convey that shape.
The third challenge is Pile it On's Mostly Orange
I don't dislike orange, but I sure don't use it very often. I actually wish this particular card was blue. LOL Too late now, it's orange, and it's getting entered into PIO's challenge!!
I hope you're having a crafty wonderful weekend!
