What was I thinking?

Posted by Captain Crafter on 9:54 AM
I just completed SCS Sketch Challenge #127. I'm not sure what I even think about it. The Designer Paper (actually vellum) is called Pickle from Stampin Up which is a retired design, but still its very cool looking. I really like the colours and pattern, but, what I'm not sure about is if its had its day in the sun. Also, its not easy to add extra colours to it and that makes it limiting. I find this card does look a bit barfy but at the same time I like it. Oh well, I'll just give it to someone I don't really like.

Let me know what you think, be honest. Thanks for looking.




I love it and I'm being perfectly honest. The colors are great and the layout is cool. Your direct to paper is a nice touch and I like how you used the big pieces. Great card! It would be wasted on someone you don't like.

Very nice, Greg! I do like the colours very much and you picked the perfect word set for this!

I think the colors are great and love the circles that you added to the card, it is a fun and happy Happy Birthday card

I like it...I tend to be partial to geometrics!

LOL... give it to someone you don't like.... gosh, I don't know why I find that so funny, but it really is! LOL...
I like it too. That pickle paper was a bit "much" for me too, but I like what you've done with it - updating it with big pieces is great!

Wow, I never would have thought to use Big Pieces with this paper and I still have some of it sitting on my shelf. I should drag it out. Thanks for the great idea, love your card!

Love it! I have some of this (and all the other) retired SU vellum in a stash in my craft closet. Guess I'll haul it out and use some of it. Thanks for the inspiration!

Barfy! Yes - I have that same barfy paper - you did a great job making it less barfy lookin though!

I *really* like the pickle paper too! I really like this card, but maybe you'd like it better without the added circles??? Then you could send it to someone who needs some brightening in their day!
