Card for Unscripted Sketches 01

Here is the Unscripted Sketches Sketch



There is a wonderful new challenge blog called Unscripted Sketches and I decided to tackle their first sketch.
I started by picking out a stamp and went form there...for me that is never a good move. I do better starting with my papers.
I decided I wanted to use the Priceless Love SS and I paired it with Let's Get Together Papers. I chose the sentiment 'You color my World'. So initially I thought I would choose really colorful papers. and this is what I got. I turned the Sketch on it's side




I decided I didn't like this card and went with the thought of making the card black and grey and coloring the sentiment only...then I went further and thought I would attempt a clear card...something I have never done before.






So I have my clear card base and added black and grey CS and stamped my sentiment on White Daisy. When the card is closed it matches the sketch. I added some CTMH Rub-on's and some red bling. Then I put those 3 pearl embellies on the bottom...don't know if I shouldn't take them off..what do you think? My Mojo was not in the ON position again today. I just couldn't SEE the card in my head.

I love it when I have an image in my head..it is so much easier.
Which one would you go with???

Maybe I should just start over LOL

Hope you had a wonderful Wednesday

Enjoy!

Hi Sarah- I like them both but if I had to pick one I like the gray and black clear card better. I think I like the pop of color in the sentiment- it really stands out!

While I like the first card...the second one really pops out at me. I like the burst of color in the red!

Great work, Sarah, although I know too well how frustrating creating can be when the mojo is elusive!

Sarah I am so thrilled you were able to do the Unscripted Sketch! Everyone will soon see all the awesome work you create! Both of these cards are so unique and wonderful; I love all the red played into the first card and how it's used as an accents in the second plus I love clear cards! Thanks again Sarah!

I love both of your cards, but I think the first one is my favorite. I am a big fan of color and flowers! Thanks so much for playing along, I hope to see more of your work in the future!

Wow! Both cards are amazing! I'm glad that you stepped outside of your comfort zone by creating the clear card. I love clear cards! So many endless possibilities. And I think the pearls look great.
