Birthday Ewe & OWH Sketch #177

What a fun hop that was yesterday! Blog Hops and the OWH Virtual Card Making Parties always leave me pumped up to create for days afterwards so I decided to put some of the creative energy towards making a card with today's sketch, which I have not done in a very long time. I have a small envelope filled with a dozen or so images I've recently colored and this was one of them so creating this card was fairly quick.



Skewing a sentiment like this is not something you see me do often because it's difficult to do well. It's a case in which you are actually placing the pieces quite precisely but making them look a bit random too. If you aren't careful the pieces just end up looking disjointed and messy. I think it works here because the fun and playful nature of the image.

By the way, did you notice the repetition in this design? Lots of dots but in a variety of sizes and color repetition too. I chose my papers based on the colors I'd used for the image.

Happy Crafting!

I DID notice your dots right away. This is a totally fun card. The addition of yellow on this card really helps everything to pop. Enjoy your week.
