Today I made a card for the CAS(E) this sketch challenge. It's the first time I've entered this challenge - and not the last! Since I started my blog, I've been wanting to branch out a little more and try new things. And card challenge blogs are just the way to find inspiration to stretch myself. They are so full of amazing designs, and are such a good starting point for those days when your creativity needs a little jump start!
Here's the inspiration:
And my card...another one for my Valentine's stash!
Pretty clean and simple - the stretch for me was adding the little background strip in grey. Normally, I would really shy away from doing this for fear that I would ruin the card. But I went for it - and I really like how it turned out. Subtle, but a little stretch nonetheless. Baby steps :)
The butterfly and heart loop are from Paper Smooches, and and little background is from The Alley Way Stamps - they are actually snowflakes from the Christmas set, Fa La La, but I think they work well as little lights in the sky too! The love you is from a Papertrey Ink set, I think it's called Little Bitty Bird.
Hope you like it!
