Okay, this is cutting it really close! I don't think I've ever turned in a card this close to the finish before, but my friend, Suzanne, created this awesome blog hop, and also let me borrow her stamps to play along, so I need to get this card linked up! Without further ado, here it is:
Here is the sketch for this month's hop:
I LOVE sketch challenges, but I don't love this card I made :( I really wish I gave myself more time to change it up. That empty space in the middle is killing me! I guess CAS will never be my style! Although I do like to challenge myself and create them sometimes :) So I used Fresh Picked stamps and dies for this card. The polka dotted washi tape is from Target and the sticker tape underneath is from Pebbles. Jen got a big prize package for being in the top 20 in Gallery Idol and she shared some of it with me! This tape was in there, and I must say I've gotten a lot of use out of it so far :)
That ribbon? Is denim!! Its from SU. I like it a lot. The pearls are from Recollections and the cardstock from PTI.
I think if I had time to doctor it up, I would have had an embossing folder, or maybe another color of cardstock on top of the blue. Oh well, next time I know to give myself more time and not wait until its an hour until close! Off to shower...I have the most exciting day planned! I'm sure you'll be seeing some pictures as it is crafting related :)
