Today I'm posting the card that I made for the Retro Sketches challenge this week. It's week 52, which means they are celebrating their one year anniversary. The challenge is to pick any one of the 51 previous challenge sketches - so I figured I might as well start with #1! I briefly (obviously too briefly!) studied the sketch and made a mental not - three longer vertical pieces and two panels - one smaller than the other. And that's what I walked away with as I headed off to make the card. I was so excited about an idea I had to use tree trunks in place of the three vertical pieces. A little outside the box! So I went about making my card, which turned out exactly how I had envisioned it (we all know that doesn't always happen!), and then went back to the sketch. Well, when I *briefly* looked at the sketch before making the card, I had overlooked...well, a major detail!! I left out an entire panel - the key panel, which was supposed to overlap the vertical strips! Uh oh! Oh well...
Here's the sketch (not the one in my head - the *actual* sketch - ha ha! :
And here's what happened:
It's a little busier than I normally do, but I'm pretty happy with it. It is all TAWS, and mostly from Trees Company (loooove that set!). I think I'll still post it on the Retro Sketches blog...hopefully my little oversight will be overlooked!!
Thank you for coming to see me - I really appreciate your visits!
