Each Sunday Alison Solven (my border buddy) and I take turns creating a card using one of our card sketches. Sketches can help to get your creativity fired up. They are open to interpretation, no real right or wrong way.
Today's card features the candles from the Bonanza Buddies stamp set. The circle and scallop circle where cut using the Layering Circles Dies. These are a staple for any stamper. The Bonanza Buddies and Birthday Bonanza Suite are retiring the end of May. Retiring stamp sets have guaranteed availability until May 22, 2020; all other products are not guaranteed and are only available while supplies last.
You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout or change it up a bit. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal. Let your imagination run wild!
