It will have to do.

Do you ever have an idea in your mind for a card that seems sooooo exciting, and then once you see it on paper, you feel absolutely wronged and cheated. Well, that's how this card turned out for me. But it will have to do, because I really wanted to play along with Tracy's Sketchy Thursday, and if nothing else, it has forced me into getting back into the swing of things with my stamping.

Don't really know if I did her sketch justice......but this was my first quick attempt. I love the flower image, but haven't really found out how to best show it off and use it in a way that totally pleases me yet....guess I'll just have to play around with it a bit more when I have some time to spare! Does that really exist?

Gonna make this short since it's the second post of the day.....see? I'm making up for lost time!

I think all of your cards are great! I haven't made anything I am happy with lately so I know how you feel!

aaaahhhh- VERY NICE card, Amanda - colors work for me and the repeated circle theme; embossing looks great too! Nice take on the sketch! :)

What are you talking about Amanda? This came out fantastic! I love this flower image and the color combo is great. I'm so glad you had a chance to play along with this week's sketch. Have a wonderful day girl!
