2Sketches4U - Laura's sketch #17

Laura's sketch this week really got me excited! I stretched my
this week more than ever before.

One of my "goals" for 2009 (not a resolution!) is to branch out a little more and include more "stash" on my cards. I'm trying to come out of my "simple" shell and just let the creativeness flow more, adding a little more pizazz. So, I started with this weeks sketch. I have used Basic Grey papers which I absolutely LOVE! The flowers are Prima, the ribbons, button and pearls are some I picked up at HL and M's. The butterfly is cut with the Cricut using the new Tinkerbell & Friends cart. (LOVE it!). The border punch is MS lace. I took a 12" piece of cardstock and cut it to 5" wide. Then, score it at 5" which gave me a 7" card back and a 5" card front. Then, I made the front square and went from there. This was too much fun! Laura, thank you so much for helping me to branch out a little and get more creative this week! You, Kazan and the DT are the best!! Everyone needs to go on over to the 2S4U site and check out all the absolutely beautiful cards. TFL!
