I took the last two weeks off from card making, but inspiration struck me this week when I received my Anna Griffin Birthday Decoupage Dies. I absolutely adored the die set and was excited to get to work. This week, I stumbled upon Get Creative Challenges which offered a great sketch layout for the challenge. Here's the sketch:
Normally, I'm a pretty big stickler for following the sketch layout. But with the birthday theme and the paper I was using, I had to put the long strip as the lowest dimension. I then used 3D adhesive dots for the circle and even large 3D adhesive dots for the square to give it a little more dimension. Here was my final product:
In person, this is a much cooler looking card than how it's captured on camera. That said, a slightly angled shot shows you how much dimension there really is here.
Overall, I was really happy with the sketch challenge and how the card came out.
Because I already pulled out my Empress, I continued with some card making. Here was another Birthday card I made using the same Anna Griffin die set.
