Sketchfest- Day 3!

Sketchfest continues at Caardvarks! Here is today's sketch:

I had a hard time with it... that's what I get for braggin' about how easy yesterday came to me. I pondered over it all afternoon. Finally, this is what I came up with:

This card was done using papers and embellishments from the Studio Calico July kit. The rub-on is from the June kit. I like the end result!

Then, Anna wanted to make her own version. I printed out the sketch and let her go. Look at this... at 4 years old, she is amazingly creative. She was quite proud! (and she should be!)

Strawberry cardstock, white vellum, odds and ends from the scrap box, snowflake punch and a dragonfly stamped in metallic blue ink.

She asked me if I liked the red strip. I said, "Yes, I do, but do you think it's a little LOUD for all the pink you have going on?" She looked at me oddly and said, "LOUD?! Mom! The paper can't even talk! How can it be LOUD?" Good point, Anna.

  8. Amanda, your card is beautiful! I love the flower and the button and bow. Colors are luscious.

    Anna, you are so smart and so talented. Pretty soon you are going to give Mommy some stiff competition! You are right, paper cannot talk, so how could it be loud. I love the way you put things together out of your head and they turn out so pretty!! Keep up the good work.
