Get Creative August Card Challenge

Good morning!

How are you this splendid day? I'm out of Athens for the weekend with family, having a blast swimming... and spending time with my nephews! Heaven!!!

So today we have the Get Creative card challenge for August. We are still in holidays mode, so we are having only one challenge this month. "Back to school in September" (although that's when I'll be off on holidays, hehe)

So.... this month's challenge is to make a card with the following sketch:

And here's the card that I made:

And a close-up:

What made me really happy about this card is that I drew myself the image you see in the circle! I couldn't believe that I did that. And that's because I always said that I can't draw anything at all. But...

I always admired Stephanie Ackerman's work and when I saw her new online class "A whole new doodle" I signed up right away. I was so surprised when I realised how easy doodling could actually be thanks to her notes and explanations. And if I find it easy, believe me, it is easy for everyone! This made me think a lot over limiting beliefs... It is something I've been thinking about quite a lot lately.

But anyway, back to our card. I made this for our friend Ioanna who moved to Chicago last month. But, typical me, I forgot to bring it with me on our last farewell coffee!

Our sponsor this month is our own Irini and her Etsy shop Get Creative Embellishments. By now I have some of the wonderful flowers she makes and you will soon see them in one of my creations!

So why don't you come over at Get Creative for more inspiration by our design team... You can participate until August 30th. We are waiting to see your wonderful cards!

Gld to here you are having fun in the sun ! Wow was really blown away by your card and even more so that you drew the images yourself its just incredible. I love the bright zingy colours and what a great take on the sketch. You are such a versatile and talented crafter Natasha and just adore everything you do.
