Operation Write Home - sketch 66
Topic: Sketch Challenge
A little celebration is in order - this is the 7th anniversary of this blog. Since May 31, 2007 I have posted every day - with a few extra posts here and there. That is 'at least' 2,555 blog posts featuring art, crafts, quilting, writing, travel, photos, gardening, and other things that interest me and keep me busy.
I sometimes (often) wonder if anyone ever reads what I post as comments are nearly nonexistant (except for the occasional shout out from my mom or daughter). I have come to the realization that, if this blog continues, I had better be doing it for my own satisfaction and not for any acknowledgement or recognition from outside.
So, Happy Blog-iversary to Me!
And now, on to the project for the day - OWH sketch 66:
This is another card where I had specific paper scraps I wanted to use but they weren't big enough to follow the sketch. So I added some more scraps and pieced the vertical bars more than specified.
I wanted to use a fancy Dazzles butterfly sticker for the feature element but I lowered it for better composition.
As I was digging the waste dots out from the butterfly wings I realized I could use them on the card, too. So I placed them in a line down one of the vertical strips and that pulls it all together.
