OTWC#18, WMC#16, PKS#34, CricutCardzChallenge#36

I love this card! I think it came out SO cute! I think that's probably bad to say about one's own cards, but sometimes you just like them. I hope you do too!



I made this from the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #34 sketch. Sketches do tend to make one's life easier and that combined with a color challenge at Off The Wall Craftiness made this a perfect card to make while watching a movie.

I am currently addicted to the chip board I got over at Torendi so I had to add that chipboard heart.

This card is so front loaded with materials and pop dots that it almost falls over towards the front when standing up! Do they make weights to put on the back of your cards in case of excessive embellishment-ing? haha.

Recipe:
A2 sized card
Paper: DCVW, K&Co.
Cartridge: Elegant Cakes™ (border, double sided and welded in Gypsy™), Wild Card™ (rectangles and circles)
Embossing: A2 Leafy Branch Emboss Folder™
Ribbon

This card therefore qualifies for the following challenges:
Off The Wall Craftiness #18: Navy blue, white, and yellow

Peachy Keen Stamps #34: Sketch

Wee Memories: Chipboard
Cricut Cardz Challenge #36: Birthday card for a teenager - I thought this would make a cute sweet 16!

I love the card and agree with you about the sketches. I can't scrap without them. I have a binder of layout and card sketches. Congratulations on being featured at Two Chics and a Cricut. I can't live without my Cricut either but that is another story.
