Diva Coffee Break Designs #195

Its is another fabulous Wednesday.  It is a big day for DH, he is getting what he calls having his “eyes zapped”!  Really it is just Lasik surgery but he has been wanting it for years and things all of the sudden fell into place and we had an opportunity we couldn't pass up.  So today is the big day!

Last week was a fantastic color challenge so that means that today it is a sketch.  Man I really had a hard time with this one.  It just felt like there were so many elements to this sketch it really threw me for a loop.  This one card took about 4 days in the design process.  The colors and the stamps are completely different than what I started with and I even omitted the DSP that I thought I really wanted to use. 

Here is the sketch we have to work with:

DCBD195_jpgSee it really isn't that bad, the sketch is a nice one but it wanted to give me a difficult time.  It is a good thing I was ahead of the game when I was working on this one.  Here is what I came up with:

dcbd195I do have to say that I am very pleased with how my card turned out.  I am glad that I kept trying this sketch instead of just completing one of my rejects.  Now I just need to get to some of those and see what I can salvage out of them to make into other cards.

Now it is time to head over to the Diva Coffee Break Designs Blog to check out the samples that the other divas have made.  Then you should get out your supplies, show me what you can do with this sketch and add a link to your creation for us to all see!
