February Challenge From My Local Paper Crafts Club

This year my Paper Crafts Club here at Sun City Festival has decided the monthly challenge will be using a sketch to make a card. When you enter the challenge you get a chance to win a prize!

If you are unfamiliar with this, a sketch is a road map of sorts for what the card front should look like. You put your own spin on it with the paper used and any embellishments, embossing, etc. based on the sketch. 

We are using sketches from My Favorite Things. Here is the one for February:

I made two A2 size cards (4.25"x5.5") since to make the card base you need to cut a piece of 8.5"x11" cardstock in half and why waste the card stock and the pretty decorative paper.

This is what I came up with:

I needed a birthday card and I send thinking of you type cards to three people every month, so I made the other a thinking of you card.

I used some giant sequins for the dots (buttons on the sketch) and some green heart stickers for the thinking of you card. The green is Stampin' UP! Granny Apple Green and I am not sure what the pretty designer papers are. I raised the leaf paper up with foam tape and cut a tiny strip to put under the saying that was hanging over on the left side.

Thanks for stopping by!!
