It's...

Sunday, August 16, 2009, Day 169 - Super Sketchy Sunday, at 365 Cards!
This is the sketch challenge for today...


And this is the front of my card...

And this is the inside of my card...

And this is what I did!

I used double sided designer paper from K&Company. The center of the front panel is one piece. I scored an inch from the right side and using my scor pal cut the angle to fold over the opposite for the light green to show when I folded it back. I used a cuttlebug trim die for the left side to take up some of the 'green' space. Used ribbon and a button to embellish.

Then I decided to decorate the inside of the card. I've seen so many examples that I thought I would try. So I cut the front green panel at 1" from the fold. Then glued the flower panel to it so the light green would show on the inside. Took the 3" left of the green panel and glued it to the back of the flower panel. Somewhere in there I put the ribbon on before it was all glued together. Clear as mud? Might be one of those times that "You should have been there!" Of course you can tell that I used the DP to finish the writing surface with a sentiment at the bottom from Perfect Harmony and the flowers from Gentler Times (SU!)

This is one time that I knew what I wanted to do as soon as I saw the sketch and it went together without giving me too much trouble. Maybe, just maybe, I getting use to the pressure!

Have a great week! SAM

This is a great card. I love the lattice on the front. The inside of the card looks great too. I haven't decorated the inside of a card yet but I see I'm gonna have to give it a try.
