Today's card is special since it's for my mom and it's her birthday today. :) She loves the color blue so I thought I'd play with some new stuff I got from Stampin' Up! It was waiting for me when I got home from work...yes! My card didn't turn out as I had planned, but I think that happens a lot. I just change what I'm doing and go in another direction. I can't forget to say that my design is from Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge #186. I haven't played along with a sketch challenge in quite a while unless I've combined it with one I'm a designer for, so it was relaxing to just come up with a card and not be pushing for a deadline after a loooong day at work. I have to admit I do work better when there's a deadline though. lol Crazy, I know.
If you get a chance head over to HSS and check out the designers cards using this sketch and play along. It's a great one!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
