Card Sketch Tuesday

Thats right! Its card creating Tuesday again! This week I chose to do the sketch project..(MCCR posts a picture of a card sketch and I have to make my version of it)..sounds fun right?! NOT! My creativity doesnt like to be bound by restrictions, it likes to do whatever it wants! LOL So this was definitely a challenge for me!  

Here is the sketch..

I will admit, I made a card and I HATED it!

Oh look, here it is now..

yep, definitely not my best work..I am sorry you had to see it. Please forgive me if I have scarred you! LOL

So after scrapping that card into the trash bin, banging my head on the wall, and finally sorting my thoughts, I came up with this..

Ahhh..yes! Much better I say!
It looks like the sketch, and I am not as ashamed of it as I was my other card :)

I cut a large scalloped circle with my cricut, and cut my dress from that. I then embossed it with my cuttlebug folder.  The border was made using my EK punch, and I kept a few swirls to add next to the dress. The hearts, rings and bells were stamps I had from Creative Imagination.

I hope you enjoyed my card, and I hope it inspires you to make something outside of your box too!

  3. Well, we do tend to be our own worst critic. And I have been in the same shoes before. However, I like both of your cards. Fantastic job!

  5. The first one really wasn't bad at all.. very cute I thought.

    I do love the elegance of the 2nd one though and the addition of those flowers on the bottom corner of the dress really completes it. Fantastic job!!

  6. Amy...I happen to think that first card was pretty cute! Your very pretty dress card is very elegant and special! You did a great job on both!

  7. I really like both cards. Don't be too hard on yourself, you did great!


  8. I liked both of the cards. They look amazing. The first one would be a really good bachelorlette party or a girls birthday.

  9. Amy,
    First off I have to say there was nothing wrong with your first card. I liked the leopard bikini!! Your second card is beautiful. I love the borders you used.
