Ultimate Card Showdown

down down down. (Did you get that big announcer voice aspect?)

The lovely ladies at 2Sketches4U are hosting the 1st annual Ultimate Card Showdown. Check it out at their blog HERE. Boiled down, the judges (those brilliant and beautiful folks) are going to pick their top 30 favorites. The top thirty will then be emailed another sketch to continue the competetion. Sooooooooo, please cross your fingers for me!!

My details -
papers from the DCWV latte mat stack
image is from Lindsay - *the* frugal crafter (go here)
prima flowers, dewdrops, copics

I really went very simple with this I think. The sketch was gorgeous and simple and I wanted to stay with it. I loved this image from Lindsay and colored it a long time ago, then I couldn't decide what to use it for, I needed something special. Well, if this UCS isn't special, I don't know what is! I put the little 4 petaled primas to match the 4 petaled flowers in the image. I also put dewdrops in/on the image to match the primas down my scallop strip. I love these dark and lovely colors. I didn't use a sentiment because sometimes I just want to leave the lovely card alone. Whenever the card is sent, the appropriate sentiment will be expressed on the inside!
