I scrap this card last Sunday in less than an hour. Well, to me I consider I am improving because I used to scrap longer than I have expected :D. The most difficult time is the 'BEGINNING'. You always mingle around with all the papers surrounding you and you just don't know which and what sort of design to achieve.
Most of the time now, I scrap without sketching at all. I just go with my instinct and just GO FOR IT! By far the outcome is still satisfying and of course would like to do something much more challenging in the future.
