Mr Cardmaker is Feeling (Cutting) Edgy
Well, I'm back to join The Cutting Edge Challenge with their latest task. I have so many photos edited, watermarked and ready to go, I am hoping to get back up to my old self here on the blog.
The challenge was to follow this inspiration--
Isn't Kay's card just beautiful? Well, I looked at it, and I broke it down to pieces-- Flowers, leaves, and sentiment, with a panel.
So, my brain went off, and we veered a bit to the left with the inspiration, but I came up with something I liked.
I made this--
This is done with WPlus9 dies and stamps, sentiment and card stock (mostly) by Stampin' Up. The purple leaves behind the panel are done with a Sizzix die.
The background paper is from one of my first ever crafting purchases. (Meeeeeeemorieeeeeees, light the corners of my miiiiiiiiind....)
Thank goodness for these dies. I would go cuckoo if I had to fussy cut all those tiny flowers!
This was a fun one, and it went to my VERY best high school friend, Karlah. We haven't seen each other in years, but my heart is with her always. We were totally inseparable, back in the day, and there is still dents in the restaurant booth were we sat drinking gallons of coffee and planning our amazing lives to come.
Thanks so much for stopping by! More to come, and SOON!
