Thoughts in Red and White

Well, I have my friend Kristina to thank for this card. She put me onto the Daily Dare blog and I now have a list of challenges I might like to try. You enabler you! :) Here are the two challenges I'm entering this card in.

Just Us Girls #45--sketch
Just For Fun Friday Color Challenge #23--kraft, red, and white

Sketch challenges are one of the areas I still have trouble with. I have a hard time stepping outside of a literal translation of the sketch. I'm a rule follower. What can I say. It goes against my very nature to not follow the given sketch to a tee. I guess the ability to see outside of the box will come as I grow in my crafting.

Paper: Kraft and white cardstock, October Afternoon Thrift Shop
Digi Doodle Shop Calliopsis, Inkadinkado Garden Flower
Inks+: Barn Door Distress Ink, Derwent Water Color Pencils, Stazon Jet Black, Polymark Medium Gold Iridescent Dimensional Fabric Paint
Tools: Nestabilities Classic Ovals Large (S4-110 and Classic Scalloped Ovals Large (S4-111), Martha Stewart Daisy Edge punch
Miscellaneous: Celebrate It ribbon, button, Crafters Square hemp cord, Recollections Rhinestone Stickers

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to come back tomorrow and see my DT project for this weeks challenge at Papercraft Star. Submissions are open until 12:00 EST Saturday. Come play along with us!
