Well, that's how I feel about today's card...I had great intentions and liked it about half way through and then, it came out eh, alright. Hurrying did not help! I was trying to fit in a post before I go with a friend of mine to run some errands, and let me tell ya, it shows!

Anyway, I based the card off of one of Michelle's sketches...yes, her again! I can't help it that she's genius! It looks about as far removed from her card, though, than anything I could've made! Mine is bright and funky whereas hers is all nice and sweet.

I used some scraps and just mix and matched 3/4" squares on the bottom of my card. I don't even know the maker of half of the papers. I used a hollyhock (CTMH) cardstock base and then stamped in Palette Noir Black my Inkadinkado bird stamp. I slipped a piece of sweet leaf (which was cuttlebug'ed with my swirls folder) underneath to sort of 'ground' the image. It left some space so I put 3 black CTMH bigger brads in the middle.

So, what do you think? I haven't had much luck adding sparkles to this image so I was scared to do it this time and ruin my whole card...and yes, I know it's crooked--I think that is why I don't like it the most! Most people won't notice, but, hey, we're stampers, we notice these things, right?!?! Give me some suggestions if you think I can liven up the card somehow! I will give myself props for using ALL SCRAPS! Go me...I tend to not do that and that's why my scrap pile is pretty large!

Enjoy the rest of your day--I can not WAIT to go to mass tonight! I am needing it, bad! :)

Hi Linzi! I love the background, but it might be a tiny-tish too busy. Unless, that is, you increase the size of your card photos! That might help. If you need help figuring out how to make them bigger, send me an email!

Well I told ya already that I liked it...despite it being a tad crooked ;) it's still cute & I think even though it's busy, all the different patterns & colors make it fun! ~Karly
