{5.5.2013} wanna sketch reminder

Getting ready for Mom

Unity Stamp company is helping you get ready for Mom.
This week’s STAMP of the WEEK is for Mother’s day.

Mother’s Day Daisies

Supah adorable and oh so sweet.
What mother doesn’t deserve some flowers?

I’m using this set with my Wanna Sketch.  I’m so excited for the ENTRIES already.
They are FABULOUS and it makes me so giddy to see what you all come up with.


I thought I’d share the evolution of this card and WHY sketches are so fabulous.  Plus, I don’t think of sketches as restricting, but as inspiring.  They get you started and then you let your creativity (or in my case, mistakes) guide you.
I actually started with the yellow patterned paper covering the entire card.  The daisies were on the white banner, but not trimmed out and I went to stamp my saying along side the banner and effed it up!  Crooked and bad.  Goodness gracious.  So I stared at it for awhile and a new plan evolved into what you see now.  I trimmed out the sides on the banner to help the flowers pop more.  Super cute right?  Please say yes.  Ha.  Then I trimmed the yellow paper and attempted a straight sentiment at the bottom.

A new Wanna Sketch will go up May 19th, so you have plenty of time to play with this one.
Link up below so I can stop by and see your beautiful project.

    your “mistake” turned out really pretty! I love the cut-out flowers. In this case, eff stands for fabulous, LOL

    I always eyeball placement, and this week I think my ‘plumb’ is off. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve adhered a panel just slightly off, stamped a crooked sentiment….lots of ‘effs’ filling the air at my house, lol 😉 I LOVE how you recovered & ended up with this totally beautiful card! And I think I’m going to have to play again – the card I’d already made sold already 🙂
