this particular sketch is from mft stamps - i love how each week they have both a sketch and a color challenge. speaking of goals for next year as i mentioned in yesterday's post, i am looking forward to participating in more challenges next year - i really enjoy the way that they get me thinking outside the box! for this one, i decided to interpret the vertical lines near the bottom as strips of patterned paper and to turn the card sideways - so you know i had to incorporate a rainbow in one way or another!

the inspiration wheel landed on die-cut element so i pulled out a die-cut that actually arrived this morning! i've had my eye on it for what seems like forever and when it went on sale, i decided i needed to have it! it cuts out up to four different elements that can be used in conjunction with one another, but i only used two on today's card. i also used a handful of other newer products and therefore today's handmade card has a bunch of photos.

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!
