Hello, Hello! I'm glad to back to my blog page and posting a new card. I've been watching the trends and there are so many wonderful ideas, I don't always know in which direction to go, so I end up being indecisive. Does that happen to you too?
Today I just dove in and here's the result - a card for my forever friend, Anna! We've been hanging out together since our college days and have seen each other through thick and thin.
I wanted to make her a hip hip hooray to life card and hope I succeeded.
I was on Karen Dunbrook's blog, "Snippets", and admired a background she did. Of course, when I did mine, it turned out inside out. I wanted the leaves to have ink and the background white, but hey, go with the flow, right?
Go to Karen's blog to check out her beautiful backgrounds with Embossing Folders. I love this one she did below. Thanks for the inspiration. Karen. I can't wait to try it again. I think a better quality white CS will help me get a more vibrant image.
