OWH Sketch Challenge 164

Today's OWH Sketch Challenge sketch-challenge-164 was quite interesting.  I wanted to do an Easter card for friends and family, and I thought a few extras for next year would be nice.  It didn't turn out like I planned.  Perhaps the sentiment was too big, or the layers were not contrasting enough, but it's not one of my favorites.  It looks like one continuous strip across the card instead of side by side strips...

 Anyways, here's the card.

I do love the design paper.  It's Recollections Kaitlyn .  
By the end of the night, I stopped making this sketch all together and made 8 others differently.

Thanks for looking! 


  1. A very pretty card, even if the two rectangles don't show. The receiver will never know and will it just the same. Nice job!

  2. I think your cards turned out beautifully, and I love the colors and papers you chose! I strayed from the sketch too, as those side panels just weren't working for me either :)

  3. These turned out great-- I took some liberties with this sketch as well-- I didn't even think to do a strip of paper-- that would have made my life much easier :)

  4. Great the soft feel...feel free to tweak the sketch however you feel works best for your card. I like your layers and sentiment (it's not too big. tfs!!!
