Today’s card was made using basic black, pool party and very vanilla. I love the way the pool party accents the black and makes it pop, while on the other hand the very vanilla tones it down. It is a very striking and complimentary color combo. I knew immediately upon seeing the sketch that I would like the finished product no matter what color combo I used! I can envision so many other greetings and color combos using this layout. Hello There to my new favorite layout.

I also determined on the last sketch how much more enjoyable it was for me assembling the card using just the sketch. By not seeing any of the other cards before I bagan mine, not even the judges, it allowed me to not be influenced by a single thought. This card is made with just the sketch layout of the card as a tool. You would think that it would be harder to create without any inspiration, but for me it seems to be helpful. Who knew? Having only been involved in card making for such a short time, I can clearly remember sitting and staring at my blank piece of paper and thinking, “I’ve got nothing.” I spent a lot of time scrolling through websites looking at cards for inspiration. Not any more! Progress has been made!
