Something a bit different... for me

Edit:  Named one of the Super 6 for Sketch #103 at CardPatterns

Howdy folks!  This is just a short post to share something I tried this evening that's really different for me.  Let's just start out with the card, shall we?


And the sketch...


Ta-da!!  OK, so you say, what's the big deal, right?  Well... nothing really, except I never make cards like this.  This clean and simple format is always so appealing to me when I see others' cards, but I just don't have the talent for it.  Luckily, Card Patterns sketch for this week's challenge totally lends itself to this type of card.  I decided I was going to give it a shot as all the DT cards were so cool.  So I tried my hand at it.  What fun... and so quick, especially for me!  heehee!


Not too bad for my first attempt, huh?  I may have to try this a again in the near future.  I had to hold myself back several times from trying to add some background DP or an extra layer or two, just to have more schtuff on there.  But I'm glad I didn't add anything else.  I like it.  I hope you do too.
