first challenge of the new year!!


So, IF I was the kind of person to do New Year resolutions, I would have probably included one about trying to use more sketches this year....to force myself to think out-of-the-box. But since I'm not that kind of person, I just decided to play along in the challenge at Caardvarks ;) They were lucky enough to have an exclusive cardmap sketch from Becky Fleck for their first challenge of the new year! I was inspired by their DT creations, and jumped right in to try one for myself! I had received some yummy Love, Elsie pp from my secret santa at Scrap-N-Circle, and paired it with some SEI I had one hand. The Heidi Swapp pink cherry bling was just too cute not to use with it, and I also used my FAVORITE American Crafts Thickers! The flower, ribbon, & ric-rack were out of my stash.
