Happy new year, everyone. it's been a while! I am so happy that anniversary celebrations have started (finally) over at the Papetrey Ink blog! This morning they announced the new design team and I'm relieved that most of my favourites will be back (so sad to see Wanda Guess go) and that a couple of amazing people have been added. Looking forward to being inspired each month.
Today's challenge is a sketch one, and I chose to follow Melissa Phillips' design. In fact, I may have followed (copied) too closely, but I really want to participate every day and have told myself that I can't get too bogged down in overcomplicating everything. Same thing with photos - simple they will be!
I meant to make my card long and narrow like Melissa did, but my embossed woodgrain panel looked really wonky as a card base so I popped it onto a white folded card.
