A Card from Sketch 10

A few weeks ago, I shared a layout from Easter 2013 that I made using this sketch:   


As usual, when I was done with my layout I used the scraps from the layout to make a card.   I love doing that.  Everything is already out and color-coordinated and just the right size for cards. Here's my card:

 

See the mistake?  I didn't... not until I'd scanned it, edited it, and was about to submit it for an article.  Here's the improved version:  


If you didn't notice the problem, check the lower right corner.

Anyway, about the card... as you can see, I kept several of the elements from the sketch and used the same color scheme as the layout.  Because of the extra mailing expense, I don't usually make square cards unless I'll be giving the card in person.  Approximately 98% of the cards I make are A2, so it was a fun exercise to make a card that with a different shape.

  6. My favorite part of your sketch is that is says "blah blah blah" in the journaling block. Never seen that before and it cracks me up! I also love making cards just after making a layout.
