Unscripted Sketches Challenge #156

Hi ya'll!

How's your weekend going?  I'm SO glad today is Saturday.  It's been a rough week, and I don't think I could have taken another day of end of month chaos.  Bleh!  I am excited though, I've got church this evening, and then I am having dinner with friends.

It's been a while since I've had anything to post on a Saturday.  I spoke with some old friends, and fortunately for me, they've been keeping my spot warm at Unscripted Sketches.  I'm excited to be back on the US design team, and can't wait to share the fabulous sketches with you again each week.  For all of the details on this weeks sketch challenge, click HERE.  This is what I came up with.

I wanted to challenge myself to keep things CAS again.  Every once in a while I feel like I'm trying to add so much "stuff" to my cards, that I need to scale things down a bit.  I was quite stumped at how to create my card for today.  When I first saw the sketch for this week, I was unsure as to how I would get my idea onto paper.  I'm glad that I had some new Nesties sitting on my desk to help me out.  I've never created a banner on any of my projects before, but have always wanted to try.  I love how it turned out.  These are some of my favorite colors together.  The yellow and blue is so appealing to me.  I hope that whomever receives this card loves it as much as I do.  :)

There are some fabulous new designers at US, and they've created some fantastic projects for you today.  I do hope you'll head over and check them out.  Maybe you'll get the chance to play along with us too. 

Back soon with another something crafty!
