CardPatterns Sketch 15

I have never attempted a card sketch challenge since starting to make cards. When I saw this week's Card Patterns Sketch 15, I figured I should try to see if I could do it. I flipped the layout and tried to play around with it that way. I must confess the above card is not my best but I had fun trying to figure out (which is the point of the whole challenge I suppose) which papers and tools to use and how I could make it fun. I love bright, "in-your-face" colours, so I used some of the older Basic Grey lines to try and create a bright fun card.

Stamp: Inkadinkado's "thankful for u" wooden stamp
Tool(s): Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder, Cuttlebug
