believe in your dreams card



OK, I am done being a slacker! My Vintage Plum friend, Samantha, runs the SPCC color challenge. I have checked in on it and never played. Truthfully, committing to a color combo scares me. I can commit to prompts and to sketches, but to have the colors decided ahead of time is a tough one for me. (Sam, forgive me for my delay in playing along. You run a great challenge!)

My friend Heidi (a SPCC Diva), badgered me until I cracked, so here is my entry for this week's challenge. These are the color combos if you'd like to play along.


And, because I am a sketch addict, I also stalk 2sketches4u and never play!

So, while I am cleansing my fears, I used their sketch #32 this week for this card. The work that is submitted over there is a bit intimidating. I occasionally play and then never submit because I usually went WAY off the sketch. This time, I think I came pretty close... and I'm playing my stalking challenges this week, so here it is!

Deep cleansing breath ... let's see what else I can accomplish this week!


Supplies: Making Memories (card), Basic Grey (pp), Prima (flowers), K&Co. (bling), Hero Arts (stamp), Perfect Pearls (on the inking)
