Been a while, AGAIN!

It's been awhile again. I keep saying that I'll stay on top of this one of these days and I keep meaning too.. Oiy as Stuffy would say. I was fortunate enough to have some time to participate in WRAK New Year's challenges. All the cards collected are being sent to the troops overseas. I was also lucky enough to be one of the challenge hostesses. That was a lot of fun for me. I chose my challenge to be a sketch challenge, with the additional difficulty of not using any flowers. This was to be a birthday card made for a wife. Below is my sample card. I chose a sketch that was created by Katharina Frei, the most awesome owner of Whiff of Joy stamps. She was kind enough to allow its use.

I love this sketch and foresee myself using it quite a bit! The square card shape is really growing on me.

I had so much fun with this card and this challenge.

This is a great card. I like the paper pieced dress and how you popped it up. I also like your choice of embossing folder.
