May 2020 Week 1 Sketch for 17th Week of 52 CCT blog

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! This week my heart and soul decided to go with an explosion of different blue tones with silvery accents and lots of snowflakes with the designated sketch for the challenge.

Can't believe we are starting May this weekend! Yikes! At 52 CCT, each full week of the month we rotate the types of challenges. Week 1 is always a sketch for the card's layout/format. Tracy is the host and she's picked out a terrific diagram. Here is what I did:

My card is sort of like a merger of the 2 layout sketches. I went wide horizontal rectangle with my 5" deep x 7" wide card base. Instead of a full background piece of cardstock, I decided to divide into fourths, so it would appear like looking out a window.

If you want to do a rectangle shape instead of the square, the layout with a vertical orientation will look like this=

Card is sitting on top of my printer since I finished scanning it and the overhead lighting is just making this card sparkle and shine. So I took time to snap a pic=

The silver disk is the moon and there's silver center panes and like a row of lights that are the gems. I'm very happy with the results! What do you think? Leave me a comment at the end of the posting.

other challenge blogs or Facebook groups where I'll share this card:
a. PPPDTC group on Facebook

b. Mixed Media Creativity group on Facebook = mediums used besides papers: gems, label, metallic dazzle sentiment, silver glitter disk, blue foam snowflakes, and border sticker...also silver glitter paint pen

c. Winter Wonderland; Your Favorite Color Combination theme starting 1 May 2020; a favorite combo for Christmas cards is to use wintery colors of blues and silvers/grays and whites, so that's what's featured on this card (and also many that I've already made this year!)

d. Merry Little Christmas Challenge blog; May Anything Christmas Goes challenge;
