Petal Palette GDP Sketch Challenge

Today my card is Petal Palette GDP Sketch Challenge #128.  I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do for this challenge and mulled it over for quite some time. Here’s a look at the beautiful sketch for this challenge. Hasn’t Steffi made a beautiful sample for the challenge? I still did a landscape card but not a long narrow one as I don’t have envelopes to fit. I like to #makeacardsendacard. So, anyway here’s is my card. Petal Palette… Read more »

Global Design Project #114 Sketch Challenge 1

It’s the weekend and time I participated in the Global Design Project #114 Sketch Challenge again. I procrastinated over this sketch challenge.
