I was trying to keep it as clean and simple as the sketch portrays but ending up adding more embellishments and layers - a slight interpretation, but still the main sketch is visible. How do you like my faux stitching around the edge? I have to laugh because it is very crooked - but that is exactly how my stitching looks when I try to do it in real life. I already had the Thank You banner cut out from another project idea that went awry, so I thought I just add a fun pop of color by using it here. I think I do like this card - it's definitely not perfect and breaks some of the rules of card making (it seems) but I think it has a fun, artsy-fartsy, eclectic feel to it - and that is very unlike me usually so I'm embracing it fully :o). I love how this sketch inspired me and kind of took me in a new direction. Hope you have enjoyed it too. Thanks so much for stopping by - til next time... Hugs and happy crafting!!
