"Creating Pretty Cards Challenge #1" (CPC1)

The gals over at Craft Project Central have started having sketch challenges...this is their first one.  Be sure to check out their blog and play along!  I really like that they offer measurement suggestions to get you started.

I pulled out a set I got for free during Sale-A-Bration...Style Beautiful....since I've never used it!  It took awhile to get to this finished product, but I'm happy with it.  Are you like me?  Does it take you a long time (and a big mess) to create a project, or do the ideas just flow and you whip them out? Wish I could!  I have to talk to myself and say "keep going...you'll find what works."  Anyway, I hope you like the card and will try out the sketch.

Here's what I used:

  1. Back in the day (when I scrapped) it took me forever to get anything done! I think I'm just too type A. :)

    This is a very pretty, feminine card. I like the butterfly and seed pearls!
