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!

i saw this graphic on instagram today and i shared it in my stories - it's absolutely so true. i know i still have a lot to learn about this business and i spend so much time researching and planning and i'm amazed at how intricate the algorithms are for social media - but these few things, these are so accurate. it might not seem like you're doing much, but sharing, hearting, commenting and saving posts does so much to help [my] exposure. the more people that can find me or hear how awesome you think i am, the better!

as for the card, i started with a light grey panel and stamped a shelf near the upper right side. i decided to use a new stamp set and i love the layering options! the shelf has a base and then an additional stamp over it to create a wood finish. the pot that is sitting on the shelf is one color and then an additional stamp adds the pattern. as for the plant itself, i used several shades of green to give it a little ombre look - darker near the roots and lighter green as it grows!
