Tuesday Morning Sketches #691

 Hello!  The latest revisited sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and Debi picked one of my sketches.  This one is one of the more challenging ones, but not hard to do.

I made 2 quick notecards featuring some really pretty from Echo Park called New Day.  More on the paper in a minute.

This first card is in shades of green matted on black.  It's nothing but paper from this paper stack.

This card is one piece of the paper and I brought in some pink card stock that I embossed using an embossing folder from Spellbinders.  The sentiment is also from the paper pack.

Okay - so the paper pad.  I bought it from Simon Says Stamp and believe me, I didn't need it.  I have plenty of paper.  But most are 4x6 paper stacks and the ones that are actually 6x6 I've dug into.  A YouTube video came up in my feed recently for Kendra's Sketch Challenge.  This is a huge challenge with huge prizes!  The idea is to use 6 sheets of 6x6 paper and make 15 cards with no scraps.  I decided to take this on.  You need to use 6 sheets of coordinating paper and that's why I bought the paper, none of mine would match.  Although I may challenge myself further and try to use up some more by mixing them up.  But anyway, I got the paper cut according to Kendra's instructions and I'll actually be making 2 of each so I end up with 30 cards.  It's going to be a process for me because I want to make up kits. So far I have 15 plastic envelopes with the cut pieces of the paper, I printed the sketches and cut those up and put them into the envelopes.  Next I want to work on the mats and other elements and then get card bases into the envelopes.  Then I'll make the cards.  The challenge closes at the end of March.  I think I'll be done by then!

Anyway, this is about Tuesday Morning Sketches and I'd really love to see you over there to join us!

Holy cow that challenge sounds like a TON of work but if anyone can pull it off it would be you! These are both such great cards - not sure that I can even pick a favorite they're tied!

These are both beautiful!!
I have SO many 6x6 pads. I'll have to go check out the video!

Very pretty cards. I love the colors you chose for the bee card. We all know how hard it is to overcome paper addictions. Yesterday, I was at the Scraporium scrapbook store in Lutz, n of Tampa, and I bought an entire paper pad because I wanted one sheet of the paper inside. But maybe I can get a pass because it is for my great granddaughter's birthday card. Have a great day. Sorry I'm running late with my comments.
