LIly Pad Cards: Greeting Farm Sketch Challenge (submission #2)

I am trying to force myself to stay away from my Cricut for everything I do.  I used to create without a Cricut, after all, for many many years.  I also just one a contest and a few notable mentions without it's usage.  But boy oh boy is it hard to ignore when I'm sitting right next to it crafting.

I think I should just get over it...the tool is there for a reason, right?

Anyway, the Greeting Farm Sketch Challenge at the Lily Pad Cards blog has no limitation on entries.  I liked my first submission a lot, but I'm not sure about this one.  Oh well, I guess you can't really love everything you do and after all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

So here is my second challenge submission.

I'm also trying to learn how to take better pictures.  I created a light box, but I don't think I quite got the hang of it yet.  I'm pretty sure I'm going to be told I need to also have a white "floor" and not my dark wood table as a base.  I'm hoping to get a crash course soon from one of my photographer friends.  So expect better photos soon!

  1. This is a really interesting take on the sketch - it's good to stretch and try different things! Thanks so much again for playing with us at Lily Pad Cards!
