Sketch Challenge #2

Hey everyone! Hope you are well and enjoying your week! Well, I didn't win the last challenge, so I'm going to try again this week. I've included the sketch and my card for the sketch below:








I love how this card turned out! I just recently acquired this cute bug stamp, and I couldn't wait to use it. This challenge worked out really well too, because I actually made this card for a special friend so I killed two birds with one card so to speak! I colored the "bugs" with colored pencils, added a little glitter to their wings, did the matting, added the bow, flower, and bling, and there ya go!

I also wanted to say thanks to all of you who keep leaving great comments and encouraging words here on my blog. I try to respond to each and every one of you to let you know how much I appreciate your taking the time to be so nice! It also gives me a chance to go visit your latest works on your blogs as well. I'm so honored to be visited by such talented and creative people! I'm going to be taking some time to start revisiting more of you so that I can start linking your blogs from mine so that others can see you too!

Don't forget to check out my "Picture of the Week" below! See you on your blogs and will post at you again soon!

Best,

Curt
