{sketch} cardabilities

Cardabilities has a great sketch up this week!

Here is my card:  XO

I combined this challenge with a "cardstock only" challenge Bev is having at My Sketch World.   I created the grid on my base with some mist and a plastic cross stitch canvas.  At the last minute I added some glitter to the end of my flower petals and it got all over so now it looks like the glitter exploded on the card!  :)  Live and learn, right?  Next time I will glitter before the flower goes on the card.  *laugh*

Thanks for a fun sketch Cardabilities and an equally fun challenge, Bev!

Happy Friday, friends!


  1. Beautiful card!!! very delicate and i love the color combination!

  2. hi Jan! Totally diggin' the misted grid!! I really like creating a mask with mist - such a cool technique. :) Love the addition of the darker blue on this card. It's lovely!!

  3. Love the misting, Jan. Beautiful card!

  4. Great job with this technique, Jan! Such a pretty card!

  5. So pretty Jan - I love your clever misted grid background - speaking of grids, excellent guess on my blog ;) Can not see your glitter-tastrophe at all, can see it on the flowers, though, and it looks pretty. Did you make that flower with a scallop circle punch? Loving the shape.


If you want to be happy, be.
