First Challenge Ever...

So one of the reasons I wanted to start a blog, was to join in some of the card sketches and colour challenges that are out there.  I didn't really understand what a card sketch and/or colour challenge was at first....having only been making cards for 3 months.  My Stampin Up rep Sandy, usually comes up with a card idea for our group, or I copy one from a magazine.  So to come up with my own design based on a template (card sketch) or colour challenge sounded like lots of fun. Especially when you see all the other cards people are posting.

So here is my first attempt at a card sketch.  I hope I can figure out how to upload and link to The Paper Players.  Be gentle on me.

I used blue cardstock from Michael's to make the base card, and All A Bloom paper from Stampin Up. The little flower in the centre was a stamp from Inkadinkado - Floral Inspiration.  

Thought this would be a great card for a man....not too fussy.

Hope you like it.
