It is a take on a sketch challenge by The Crafts Meow. Here is their sketch:
At first I made another card, which I will post tomorrow, but after completing it, I just didn't feel like it was me. So, it was back to the drawing board where created this little beauty. I knew it was a winner, in my heart anyway, when I put down those pretty patterned papers. The best part is that all the papers were SCRAPS! How about that! ?!? I took some liberties with the scetch, I hope that I am allowed to.
You know when you are making something good and you get a little EXTRA happy? That's what making cards and crafting does to me! Makes me a little extra happy.
Some women take xanax, I just make cards :)
I am also entering this card in the Lily Pad Patterned Paper Challenge. :)
footnote: this card is Beachorado because: it has a combination of a variety of colors, both muted and with some pop, some texture (buttons), some nature (the bird), and you can put this in both a winter cabin home and a beach home and it would fit nicely!
