Hi everyone welcome to Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop!
If you're following this blog hop, you would've just came from the lovely Meighan Wheller's page.
This month we have a Sketch Challenge.
My Dad's birthday is just around the corner, so I thought this is perfect opportunity to tick two things off my to do list!
This is what I came up with.
Ok, let me share my thought process with you. I started with every intention to follow the sketch as closely as possible. So that explains the matting and the circle placement. For the strip behind the circle, I decided to use leaves instead, however, two leaves weren't enough 😆! So I placed a few more leaves around the circle. Some were stamped and die-cut, some were die-cut directly from gold foil sheets (see my listing of materials/tools used below).
When it was time to put the sentiment on, I initially had it on the angle, just like the sketch, but then knowing my Dad who's a very neat and orderly man, I was worried that having the sentiment on an angle might annoy him a bit? LOL! Anyway, so I decided to just stick it down horizontally.
In the end, my card felt quite different to the sketch, but it's still lovely though, isn't it? 😊
