Just saying hello

This year my resolution is to try my hand at more card challenges, ones I haven't tried before. I also resolve to post my cards to the challenge blogs (resolution #2), which is something I seldom do, but here I go!

This clean and versatile sketch by Kim is from Freshly Made Sketches:

I really like this sketch, it was so easy to design my card. I combined it with the Shopping Our Stash Stickle Me Elmo challenge, to use glitter, like Stickles, on a project. I decided my card needed blue glitter but I didn't have first thought was, well I'll just go git some. But that'd be cheating...Shopping Our Stash is about using what you already have, which is resolution #3. So I settled for the green glitter (Recollections stickles knock-off) and it turned out just ducky. (True confession, this card reminds me of a pair of pants I had in the seventies that had big blue and green pop art style flowers. I loved them.)

And here's some close-ups of a few of the faux stickles.

That was fun...what will I try next?
