Thank you...

Hi everyone! Welcome to Wednesday...it's Hump Day as they say on the local news..and it drives me bonkers because the guy says it with this weird cartoon like voice. I swear, it totally starts my Wednesdays off wrong..lol. Anyway, today's card is a tad busy, but I like it. I went button crazy as you'll see. :)

I used the 4th sketch from the Verve Release week sketch challenges and also I am participating in the Practicing Creativity Designs challenge this week. Take a looksie at Courtney's blog for more info! You could be the Guest designer next month! Here is the Verve sketch:

And here is my card:


I got the idea of making it a long card from Laurie's card last week. It IS huge, but I like it. I liked that I had a lot more room to make my image...it was a lot of fun. The buttons make it a tad bulky, and my husband said, "You're going to have to hand deliver that!"...lol. I am also (thanks to Michelle) entering this into the Denami Ribbon challenge. Take a looksie and come play along. Ribbon is just the BEST card thing, right? I love love love playing with ribbon. :)

This card was totally fun...I fell in love with the colors,too. Not sure if you can see, but there is a kraft layer under the yellow. Ok, well that's it from me. Hope you like the card. Laters!

You were so very creative with this sketch! I love the circle of buttons....and this card would have to be hand delivered. But the best part? You get to see the recipients response. Beautiful Keva!
