Getting out of my comfort zone….

I very rarely (and I mean VERY rarely) ever use just a white card base as my background layer.  I’m so afraid of the card looking too plain.  I saw a sketch on the Freshly Made Sketches site and knew I had to try to step out of my comfort zone.

The sketch:


My card:


To be honest, and to explain why my banners/flags do not match the sketch, I remembered seeing the sketch but didn’t go back to it for reference when making the card.  Hey, I’m just glad I remembered anything at all.  Really.  This card will be added to my Operation Write Home box.

Thanks for stopping by!
