Welcome to Scraps To Treasure's February Hop!
Sketches are fun and useful for those in a hurry, gives you a guide to go by when you get stumped for idea but the sky is the limit with a sketch since it is your creative mind and showing how you have interpreted it.

Here is what the card sketch inspired me to make:
So as you know, we at Scraps to Treasures, use up our scraps to make our projects. These papers come from a Close to My Heart paper pack called Avonlea. I had created a set of 15 cards for a workshop using this paper and STILL had paper left over! Soooooo, I decided to make MORE cards! My card stash has gotten so low - it was time to replenish! PLUS I accepted a challenge from some crafty friends of mine to make 500 cards this year! You think that's a lot? They are each doing 750 cards!
Anyway, on with more on my cards. I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut the ovals. You can find the image on page 42, C2, < Oval3 > cut at 2" and 2 1/4". I also cut the scalloped border with the cartridge: page 64, E4, Shift, Font, < Arrow2 > cut at 3/4". The sentiment, the 2 little flowers, and the "flair" I stamped on the scalloped borders were stamped using the stamp set that comes with the Avonlea Workshop on the Go kit and were stamped with Slate ink.
