Yay! It's Friday!! I'm very glad this week is over!
Still trying to work through my frustration from yesterday, so I went pretty simple on this card. A few people had commented that they look for sketches to follow and everything falls into place...well I usually do follow sketches, but I've been trying to force elements to work with a sketch and that I think is where my frustration comes from most times. So I decided to choose a sketch and let it "speak" to me. And while it is simple, I think it worked out pretty well:
Crafting Moments Cardmaking. It's colored with my new pencils! Was so excited to get new ones as my original set of 12 were getting pretty worn down :)
The yellow panels are embossed with the snake folder from the Cuttlebug Animal Prints pack. They are mostly hidden but I thought that went along pretty well with a dragon...something other than swirls and dots.
The sentiment was a freebie from Create with TLC. It's printed at about 1 1/2 inches and then cut out using my Cricut Lacy Labels cartridge. I edited it slightly to remove the "Feel Better Soon" line, which will be added to the inside of the card once I get that decorated.
I was shocked to find a green button in my embellishment drawer! Buttons are not something I keep on hand...not sure why since they are very popular for cards...I just never find myself purchasing buttons...but I had just the right one for this card! I layered it onto yellow ribbon and strung some green cord through the middle for a second bow.
