Blogger's Challenge #50

This week our Blogger's Challenge was to use Chocolate Chip, Red and Baja Breeze. While I had a very difficult time envisioning this card, once I chose the patterned paper, I had it in my mind what to do and love how it turned out.


I made two of these cards as after I made the first one I didn't feel like it "popped" out enough, so I tried a different combination of the flowers and like the way the one to the right turned out.


The sketch of this card was based of Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch #67. Julee has fabulous sketches each week (watch out for her blog specifically for the sketches). I did eliminate one of the sentiments as I didn't think the first one stood out enough so will include it on the inside of my card on the othe one.
