Well this is the first card I did tonight and I thought it turned out rather well. I used the Sweet Sketch 3 by Ariana Patten at the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog. This paper is absolutely too cute. It is Stampin' Up! designer paper "Tea Party". I actually bought it to scrapbook some pages of my granddaughters and when I saw the colors for this sketch, I knew I would have to use it for a card also. It had all the colors I needed for their challenge. I guess this is why I became a stampin' up! demonstrator. I just love to see how things come together and I can see a sketch and know almost immediately what stamp set I would like to use. This sketch was no different. I knew the "Sweet Stems" set would work wonderfully with the Tea party Paper and the sketch. It makes you feel good when it all comes together as you thought. There are those times though that you want to throw the whole card away after it is complete. I got to where I still post them and just laugh about it. Even with this card, the "get well wishes" is crooked. Too late once the stamp hits the paper, that what you get. As my daughter says "shows character". You gotta love her. She made a father's day card for her dad and stamped the inside phrase upside down. She then turned it the right way and stamped it again. She told him he was special because he got a mirror image. Who would have thought about that. lol
