one thing that i love about sketches is the freedom of interpretation. i liked the layout of this design, but decided to flip the narrow [pink] strip 90 degrees so that it would be horizontal. i also eliminated the small scattered circles, ideally gems or sequins. ordinarily i would've kept them but i decided the patterns i selected to use had enough shine and bling!

#the100dayproject : handmade card 76/100-2 : friend like you
today i had several packages of new supplies arrive - and i've still got a couple on the way! [yayyy for black friday shopping!] one of the things that i was most excited about was the complete set of ink colors from concord & 9th. i've been waiting for them to come back in stock for what seems like forever and on black friday they did and i quickly scooped them up! just look at the glorious colors - and when i opened them, i was in awe. they have such a cool texture and the few colors i sampled are just fantastic. yay - plus, now i want to make a piece of art with all the ink samplings from the three main companies i use . so stay tuned for that.

i'll be adding this card, [along with a few others that i managed to create today], into the online shop tomorrow. i've still got a few other surprises to share and i'm super jazzed about the online events for both the virtual holiday makers market as well as the shop holiday handmade. it's such a good feeling to support small businesses and i can't wait to see what everyone else has in store!
