What better way to start - 2 Sketches 4U challenge

I have been stalking 2 Sketches 4 U for a long time and used their sketches on several occasions. I find that blog really inspirational, Laura and Kazan have amazing talent and design team is always out of this world!

Yesterday I remembered about my aunts birthday and had to throw someting together fairly quick, bearing in mind it had tobe quite traditional and very PC. Don’t we all have one of THESE aunts!

As usual in emergencies I headed to 2S4U and used their sketch … gotta admit VERY loosely this time, but hey, I was sleepy, alrite. And baby kept waking. As a result I am not particularly happy with the card. It's more so one of those “that’ll do” cases.

Kazan’s sketch 21:

And here's what I did with it:

A bit of a different angle:

Hmmm. Not sure it’ll qualify.

Oh well. Gotta start someplace.

Annika this is lovely - so glad you are not stalking anymore :) and this card is a great interpretation of the sketch & totally qualifies. I think your aunt will love it.
Welcome :)

Adorable card! I love the "lacy" border - is that a punch?

Love the punched border ... very pretty.

This is very pretty card...the lace punched border is perfect...your aunt will love it!

Annika said...

The lace border is a cheapo obscure brand border punch from ebay which you aren't really supposed to use on cardstock ... of course I still do. Sigh. Not a clever pup, me.

Oh this is so pretty Annika!

To answer your question about the PP, it was from my LSS about 2 years ago....LOL! I loved it but it sure took me a while to break it out!
It is by Autumn Leaves: foof-a-la. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I think this is a fabulous take on the sketch! I love all of the pinks and that chipboard flourish, too.

Thanks for the kind comments on my blog. Enjoy your weekend!
