Ahhh Friday... oh how I look forward to this day all week long. It's my day off and I've got big plans so I'm just going to dive right into today's post. :)
I'm still on a roll with the whole combining challenges thing, even if I haven't broken my record of two... LOL, it's all good though. So my card combines this week's Diedrich Dare sketch challenge and this week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. I loved the whole pink, aqua and brown color combo plus I just couldn't resist the chance to pull out these cutie snowmen stamps that have been a favorite of mine for a couple years now. Something about the sketchy way they are drawn totally reminds me of the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes (which I'm still totally bummed over its not being written anymore...sigh). But I digress... back to the card, when I saw Jack's sketch I immediately saw a whole stamped bottom panel rather than my usual cut-out image and it was fun to create an entire scene.
The end result is pretty clean and simple looking but I really dig it. ;)
Thanks for stopping by today, I'll chat with ya again manana.
