Creating Pretty Cards - Sketch Challenge #30

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  You Can Even Fit It In During The Commercials!
If you happen to tell yourself that you don't have time to create, I challenge you to think again!  Tonight we decided to chill out and watch a movie on tv.  Usually I'm not a fan of tv movie watching since the movie is often edited for tv and is loaded with commercials.  But tonight, those commercials that I often dread actually were my friend!  During each commercial break, I went into my craft room and added one more element to this card!  It was an interesting way to create - just one thing at a time and then walking away until the next set of commercials.  There was something freeing about it - allowing myself to not know what would come next and being able to look at what was happening with fresh eyes every time I went back into the craft room.  I might have to challenge myself to do this again sometime soon!  It's nice to try a change of creating pace :)
Today's card was creating for the Creating Pretty Cards - Sketch Challenge #30 over at Craft Project Central.  Feel free to visit Craft Project Central and join the challenge!  If enough people participate there will be a chance to win a free one-month subscription to Craft Project Central!!!!  I combined Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party and Crumb Cake card stock with some washi tape, embossing and random stamping.  The sentiment is from Express Yourself.  I hope you like it :)

Love how you interpreted the sketch, Michelle. I can't imagine coming up with such a gorgeous card in fits and starts. If I'm distracted while trying to design a card, it never gets done. Kudos for making such good use of commercial time! Hugs, Doris
