Challenge Met!

You ever get an idea for a card, you start creating, and it just does not turn out at all the way you imagined it in your head?  Well, that happens to me (probably more frequently than I care to admit), and today it happened again with this card.

I L-O-V-E the sketches over on CAS(E) this Sketch!  Normally, I see the sketch and take off with the ideas.  This week, the ladies over there really did challenge me.  I struggled a bit, but I did not give up!  Thanks for the challenge!  

I decided to combine the sketch challenge with the color challenge over on Dynamic Duos, Sahara Sand and Cherry Cobbler.

I scrapped one idea I had altogether (I cut out the birds from the Merry Details sizzlet, but they were too big for three of them...).  Then I stamped a trio of bows under the strip of Sahara Sand, but it just didn't look right.  Scrapped again.

This is what I ended up with.  Three little ornaments.  It's simple (thus CAS) and it's pretty cute.  Sweet simplicity.

Thanks for looking!

Boy, if I had a nickel for every time I had an idea and it didn't turn out....

I think your card is perfect. Perfect for a clean & simple challenge, and I love how you used the colors. Nice job. ;-) Glad you found time for more Dynamic Duos creativity!
