Cardabilities Sketch #80 Challenge


  What is your favorite way to create a card?  I usually choose a focal image and build my card around it.  Most often I stick with one manufacturer collection, but I get even more excited when I make a scrappier card (different manufacturers) like this one.
  When I am going to stamp an image, I first choose an image and then my papers.  When I am just playing with paper, I will search for an element (e.g. an sticker, a glazed brad embellishment, or a chipboard embellishment) and then choose coordinating papers in that collection.  Even when I play with my Cricut I start with the image I want to cut and then choose the papers that give me the look and feel that I want the card to have.
  This week my inspiration started with Cardabilities sketch #80,  yet I still chose the 3D heart/camera sticker as my focal point before designing the rest of the card.
Supplies:
paper:  Fancy Pants "Country Boutique" (black polka dot); BasicGrey "Ambrosia" (orange damask and grey paisley); SU whisper white card stock
black gems:  i-rock tool and hot rocks
3D sticker:  Amy Tangerine "Hi Friend" (camera/heart element from December 2011 Artful Delight kit)
border punch:  SU
sentiment:  SRM sticker "We've got your border" Bright

  This fortnight Cardabilities is having a Rafflecopter giveaway with Scraptown Lady.  Please join in the fun!  I hope you win :)
Happy Tuesday!

i *GUARANTEE* there isn't enough room in these comment boxes to hear how *I* create a card... but we are alike in that there is usually ONE THING that sets it off and everything else revolves around it. in this case, that ♥FAB♥ sticker in combination with the awesome sketch might well have done it, b/c YEAH. they both sooooo totally ROCK, especially in your hands!!! :)
