Today's card is a combination of a color challenge from Create with Connie and Mary:
And the sketch challenge from the Paper Craft Crew:
Wowzers! This was NOT a 5-minute card for me! I struggled for a while with this sketch design, mostly because I maintain a strong distaste for geometric shapes. And, this challenge combined 2 of my biggest papercrafting aversions -chevrons AND arrows! Holy, wait a minute, while I go pop a Paxil! Anxiety overload here. . . .
Pull it together, Super Stamp Girl. You can do this!
With my big girl panties pulled up, I whipped up this soothing ocean scene and once I found an appropriate substitute for the arrows, I was almost patting myself on my own back delighting in my ingenuity! Anchors. Arrows. Same dif, right?
