And the layout sketch is from Stephanie Baxter's Front Row Gallery:
We invited member Carson (carson) to choose one of these to use as a starting point this week, but she couldn't stop at just one...so she used BOTH sketches!! We love both of the cards she made!!
Making a card from a scrapbook layout, especially such a detailed one, has always been a challenge for me. I'm not a scrapbooker and have always had a great admiration for all the time and effort it takes to scrapbook so beautifully. I did want to push myself with this sketch and I'm glad I did. I love the way the card turned out, and although it took a lot longer than a card normally would, I feel as though I really stretched my creative boundaries. As you can see I pared the sketch way down to fit the much smaller card format. I computer generated the Live, Laugh and Love sentiments and transferred them to the paper with using a printed transparency. I even pulled out the tool box for this one, using the wire cutters to clip the tabs off the brads, turning them into buttons. Oh, and nothing makes me happier than that bright yellow washi tape.
