Now, as much as I have been loving the sketch challenges, they have been hindering my creative ability just a bit because I keep thinking I have to follow the sketch EXACTLY. In my mind, this card should have had two more rectangular blocks of cardstock or DSP. I decided, however, that I needed to try to think outside of the box (or block :) and do something different in place of those blocks. If others can do it, why can't I?! Here is my take on going outside of the box:
Do you see how I added the sanded woodgrain tag in place of the back rectangle, and the leaves in place of the front rectangle? Don't think you have to stick to a sketch exactly. Change things up a bit. I added the button like the sketch, but that could have easily been a different element. The fun is making it all your own!
