It’s snowing for The Paper Players….

I figured everyone would be using the SU Bigz Snow Flurry but that’s okay, right? The die is so versatile and pretty. Here is my take on The Paper Players Snowflake Challenge # 126

Fireworks for Freshly Made Sketches and retrosketches…

I get together once a year with four other fun girls- Wendy, Julie, Amy, and Tracey- to exchange cards with each other. It is a wonderful time of eating, laughing, and “oohing and ahhhhing” over each other’s cards! We each have a theme to our cards like Masculine Birthday, Sympathy, or Thank You. My theme is Holidays so I am creating various designs of yearly holidays. I made this card with two sketches in mind…retrosketches #42 in a landscape position and an interpretation of Freshly Made Sketches #65 by also making it landscape to accommodate the “happy” and putting the banner to the left instead of the right of the focal image because I thought, “Who says: Fourth of July Happy?”
