WOW, tough sketch for me!! Geesh!! First of all, my oval is "special" in that it's larger then the measurements....so when I tried to make my fan as large as the measurements the card was huge enough to fan a very large man. So I cut down the fan and then I didn't like the color of the fan....so I changed it to be the same color as the card so it would sort of "blend in" LOL....it looks awesome on YOUR card Roxie, but on mine, I had to kind of make the fan inconspicuous. I was going for a victorian fan look, but sometimes you don't GET what you GO FOR. So I am a fan failure. It's there, but does not have the same effect as Roxies. Anyway I am off to bed.....I tried!!! I had been yearning to color these flowers in the new in colors....so I did that last night and hoped it could be used in this sketch challenge.......you win some you lose some. :) I am sketch challenged.......:) Happy Wednesday everyone!! My real mojo will return, wait and see!! (and to all you CHA fans out there, I didn't go to CHA, I went to STAMPIN'UPS convention!! :) It would have been awesome to do BOTH!! :)

oh my goodness how simply gorgeous is this card. I had such a great time reading stories and listening to awesome Christian music on your blog today. I was feeling a little down today and I truly believe God led me to your site. Thank you for the inspiration. tfs.

LOL...so you were prepared to fan a large man?! Though you had some fan trials and tribulations...the end result is a gorgeous card!
