I tried two new challenges yesterday – Sketchbook Saturday and CAS-ual Fridays. Hopefully I’ve met all the requirements!
I’ve been blog-stalking both of them for a while, trying to work up the courage to join in. I always struggle with feeling like my creations are ‘not that great’ and doubting whether they are share-worthy, but I finally dove into the challenges yesterday. Actually, I guess it’s today that I’m feeling brave, since the bravery isn’t required for making the card, it’s required for actually SHARING the card!
Anyway, here it is:
For the CAS-ual Friday challenge, I chose Scallops/Polka Dots/Pink as my Tic-Tac-Toe line. To be honest, though, I’m not really sure what ‘clean and simple’ means. I tried to do clean and simple here, so I hope it comes across that way. It certainly was a simple card to make – less than 20 minutes, I think (which is very, VERY quick for me!).
I’m not always great at sketch challenges, but this one felt comfortable right from the start. Maybe that’s because I paired it with another challenge, both of which basically handed me all the elements necessary – color, placement, shape, design, etc.
I was also happy to introduce myself to my new Butterfly Dreams stamp set.

It felt like a breeze to create this card, and I really like it. It suits me perfectly!
