Crazy 4 Challenges #2

It's time for another super fun challenge at Crazy4Challenges!
A very special thanks to those that played along with us on our very first challenge. The response was overwhelming! We are all so happy to see that you enjoy playing along with us!

This week, we are all honored to work with another of Cindy Haffner's awesome sketches.
No...really, I DID work with the sketch, it just strayed off at some point in the middle of creating!

Normally, I am such a stickler for following a sketch as closely as possible. I may turn the sketch of flip it, but my cards usually look like the sketch when done. This time, not so much! I originally was only going to change the squares to rectangles....see the 4 panels in the background? They're there...I promise! And then, I was going to make the main panel a rectangle. I did all of that, but then I didn't like the girl (who by the way is another byLoriDesigns fab drawing that will hopefully be a digi image soon!) in the center. So, I shifted her to the side, added a ribbon, sentiment and bride's flowers colored with Copics and it ended up not looking much like the sketch. I am really happy with the card...I just hate that it doesn't look much like the sketch.

Materials: STAMPS- Teen Girl digi (byLoriDesigns), sentiment (PSX) INK-Versafine Onyx Black (Tsukineko), Copic Markers PAPER-Colormates & Cascata (WorldWin Papers) OTHER-Bloom Dots embossing folder (ProvoCraft), Ribbon, Bride's Flowers, Rhinestones (colored black with Copic Markers), Foam Tape

Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to drop in at C4C to see what my fellow designers did with Cindy's sketch! You won't be disappointed!
