i love sketches by tsunamirose
My rendition:

Again for this day, I made two cards.  I made two card because I did not like how the first one turned out.  While I love the design, I did not feel like implemented the idea very well.  The yellow behind the colored pieces was off for me, i felt it was to big.  The middle bar I liked, because I really like this paper and love highlighting the rose.

My second take on the card I feel is a lot better than the first. There is a lot of pink on this card, it is very colorful.

Sometimes when I create, I have to really step back and rein myself in for a moment.  I get all of these ideas jumbled up in my mind, then I have a problem implementing them.  I believe this is what happened with me on both cards for this blog hop.  I got these great ideas at first, then, I went to far to the left to make it happen.

This however is what I really like about using Daisy Collins aka Tsunami Rose sketches. The freedom to do what you want to do and how you want to do it.

I do encourage you all to come over for a visit and check out her sketches by joining our Facebook group!
