Edited 4/7/13: My card made Top 3 at Unscripted Sketched and got Honorable Mention at Just Add Ink! So excited!!

Hello there! Hope your Easter was splendid and that you and your family had a wonderful day together. I think this was the quietest Easter for us as my little girl still had a bad cold, and I am still trying to get over mine. I managed to create a card last night. I tried to challenge myself and create it in 10 minutes, but it TOTALLY did not work out. I definitely need to plan a bit more. Well after much more than 10 minutes, this is what I made:

Color and Inspiration...

The CCG Designer's Challenge: I chose Inspiration Photo #1 - Focus On Technique: Dry Embossing. I was also inspired by Photo #1 mimic the arch frame by creating a scalloped edge. The trim inspired me to add dimensional paint and a circular element for the fountain.

Sketch Inspiration...
Sketch #204 @ Unscripted Sketches

    The Sketch Interpretation
  • For the "three horizontal blocks": I substituted them for banner strips. Or are they called flag strips?
  • For the "title/greeting": I moved it down a notch
  • The "bow/string": Because of the irregular shape of the scalloped edge, I found it difficult to add it in. I tried, but it wouldn't work for me. Being it was my first time playing with them, I was a little worried. But when I looked at the DT samples again, it really was okay to leave it out. WHEW!

I used My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Market 6x6 Pad and these Papertrey Ink goodies:
