"adore" for 2s4u bonus!

yay! two sketches this week over at 2sketches4you, and i've already played with one!

this week's sketch comes from one of the designers, Ewonne, and it's great!

i started making this card with a white base (you can see it actually), but ended up mangling it with my bow-tying skills... in other words, i pulled too hard (really hard, actually) and my base ripped. sooo, i improvised and transferred the front of the card to a different base, and here we

i think the blues and whites are so pretty--and the sketch worked perfectly with this chipboard piece from Colorbok from their "Sweet Life" line... too cute, right?

my brother Joey was watching me tie the bow (and pull too hard) and he promptly whipped out his cell phone to leave himself a note to make me some sheet metal strips to lay underneath my card base when i tie my bows. he's so sweet :)

in the midst of the tearing of the card base, Joey asked, "What is this card for?" I told him it was for a sketch challenge, and he said, "It doesn't have to be perfect... *long pause* you could give it to me." haha! he really is sweet--i told him i would have to fix it anyway (i have standards) and told him i thought it might be a little girly for him. his reply was, "It's blue. I would like getting it."

so, in short, Joey's great (such an encouragement), but this card will probably go to my mom for Mother's day, and i'll make something funkier and more colorful (hopefully more guy-ish) for Joey :)

hope you enjoy, thanks for looking and all your sweet comments!
