CPS Sketch 26

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.

This is the last of the 15 cards.
Sketch 26
The dandelion to wish on was a huge one that I found at Rondeau Park last summer so I knelt down and took a picture of it. Hubby thinks I'm a bit nuts sometimes but I knew it would make a good picture for a "Make a Wish" card. The green strip was run thru the Cuttlebug skinny folder. The stacked labels are a Spellbinders die. The little gold gift was a peel-and-stick that I put on white cardstock first, then cut around it and coloured it in. The star just added a bit to the card because the background paper had stars on it.
