Today’s card is for the Paper Craft Crew’s weekly Sketch Challenge.   Today’s sketch is a fun and playful sketch designed by Pam Staples.  I hope that you will play along with us this week.   Below is the card sketch.


The Touch of the Unexpected:

Here is my card design, for this weeks sketch.   I wanted to do something a little different so I used the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper, along with Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape.   But to push the card over the limit and to add a little bit of the unexpected to my design I used a 2 1/4″ circle punch and punched out my circle on the top layer so that the bottom layer with the copper embossed sentiment is allowed to show through.  I know must would have just used a punched out shape and attached to the whisper white piece but I wanted a little more.   The card design is so clean and simple that it needed a little more drama and unexpectedness.

Color Combination:

My color combination is just as unexpected.  I went with Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake, and Copper.   The copper is provided throughout the card.   I used it to emboss one of the flowers all the way, in the center of one, as the embossed sentiment and on the flag at the top.   The flag at the top is actually washi tape attached to whisper white cardstock and then cut to size with the flagged ends.  You can see my post about doing this on my YouTube channel by clicking here!

This color combination is such a wonderful one for spring or summer.  It’s light and airy without to much going on so it was perfect for this card sketch.


Here’s a look at my card one more time.
