Hello! I have our November Simply Paper Design Challenge cards. Here was our sketch and color challenge:
Here we have Michelle's card. I love the little additions she chose to place on this card. It adds that little extra something. The angled frame piece behind the sentiment is brilliant! I'll be copying that ;) The textured background stamp gives the card a nice depth and fills in the blank space nicely! Great job, Michelle - love it! Please visit Michelle's blog here.
Here is my card. This was a fun layout, but I had to completely change my plans as the stamp that I thought I'd used just didn't work with this sketch. It was too big. But, I'm happy with the end product. I originally thought I'd do a Thanksgiving/Fall card, but after having to change the main image, I decided to do a male birthday card. I think the colors work nicely. I have a hard time not using ribbon on any card and I know that it isn't too masculine, so I added some metal hodgepodge to help keep it more masculine. I colored in the stamp image with my markers to get the different colors on the image. It was a fun sketch and I think I'll use it again!
Debbie is working on her card, so I'll post when she's ready.
Have a very happy day and thanks for looking!
