CPS Sketch 102

I gave myself quite a challenge – two challenges really. Here’s how it went down. The CPS blog provides card sketches and request that we make a card based on that sketch and link it to their blog. There were 15 for this challenge. Because my computer was down for most of January I thought I was not going to be able to participate. However, I decided to go for it! I finally got the last few cards finished last night and I am posting them on my blog, linking them to this one:
http://cardpositioningsystems.blogspot.com.  If you struggle coming up with ideas for cards, by all means check out their blog and download the sketches. I've never been a sketch user before but I found out that it is much quicker with a sketch to follow. The second part of my challenge was to use as much of my “stash” as I could. No taking the quick way and grabbing a new piece of paper or cardstock. This slowed me down a bit but I did use a lot of the stash and only had to cut a new piece when absolutely necessary. I will be posting all 15 cards on their own posting to keep it simple.

Sketch 102 was fun to make. The striped paper was from my stash. It was two sided so I flipped it over and ran another piece thru the Cuttlebug using their birthday folder positioning it so the word birthday showed up and then I sanded off some of the top of the embossed letters. The flower was made with the Sizzix Tim Holtz flower die, some of it is vellum, some paper. The lace added a nice touch I thought.
