Rejection Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone! Happy Sunday.

First of all, congrats to everyone who had cards accepted into Paper Crafts Go-to Sketches. I didn’t have anything picked up, but trying to see the silver lining – plenty to go on the blog this week! I’m sure like many other crafters, it is hard not to be discouraged, but going to dust myself off & try again. I was so excited to see a great idea for a rejection blog hope on Amber’s blog & delighted to join in!

I had a few cards that I really enjoyed making and I thought I would post them here. They are really patterned paper heavy – I love patterned paper, but do try to keep things simple. For this particular call I wanted to use lots of the newest stuff available.

Here is my card for sketch 59:

I’m also submitting this card for the current Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge & the Color Q challenge. Let me just say – this flower was a real labor of love – lots of paper scoring and folding!
Another card I really loved making that is full of Basic Grey Hopstotch goodness is this one for sketch 55:
There is much more to come this week for reject cards so stay tuned!
Thanks for visiting & thanks again to Amber for this great idea!ο»Ώ

    I think the reject club is quite large and has some very impressive entries!!!! These are SPECTACULAR! Love them both! Don’t feel a bit bad about them not making the cut—they definitely are top notch. Thanks for playing with us at the CQC this week!

    I can tell you spent a lot of time on your cards. They are lovely. It’s just a matter of time before one of yours gets picked – at least that’s what I keep telling myself :) Can’t wait to see more of your cards.

    So beautiful! I love the layers of patterned scallops, and your flower on the first one is a showstopper! You will make it one of these times for SURE!
