The large stamp group that I belong to (which actually I'm in charge of, sort of like how you leave the least drunk of your friends to be the designated driver) does an optional monthly card exchange. This month instead of a theme, we did a sketch layout to follow.
We were provided with the following sketch, which someone borrowed from Splitcoast. I heard lots of grumbling about how people didn't like to be told what to do, this was too limiting, this was not limiting enough (no dimensions given), etc. Ultimately a record number of people joined in the swap this month.
I did my usual wait until the last minute thing and then whip out a card. I knew I wanted to do something cute and springlike so here is what I came up with.
The Fine Print: Hedgehog stamp by Penny Black, paper flowers and brads from my stash, and someone's 6x6 designer paper pad. The card I received (by EM) is most likely made with Stampin' Up products.
