Two for Tuesday
I got a bit busy yesterday afternoon and forgot to post here on my blog, so today I have two cards for you. The first one is my interpretation of the Retro Sketches Challenge this week. I've been wanting to hang stockings from this clothesline since I got it and this sketch provided me with the perfect opportunity!
Next up is this weeks card for Nathan. You can read about Nathan and his story here.
My card design was inspired by another of Cristina Kowalczyk's cards in the Holiday Cards & More issue of PaperCrafts Magazine. You can see her card on page 56. I started with Cristina's general layout. I loved the simplicity of her card, with the image in the upper third and the sentiment directly below it. I decided to add a bit more to my card being that it was for a little boy, I thought it would be more appealing to him with some glitter and plaid paper :)
I hope your week is off to a great start!
