Hello there! OK, I have to admit...this card has been made since early last week. Our Creative Corner is having a Design Team call to "show your style" and that was my motivation for putting this one together. I have been SO hesitant to submit it, because after all was said and done...I just wanted to make sure it was good enough to submit. So...no looking back...I'm going to "just DO it"! Eeek! :)When it comes to "my style", I'm still trying to determine what that really is. Usually, I think it has a lot to do with those cards that come together really easily when you make them, or the ones that make you happy when you finally see the finished product. This card did both for me. I made two cards a while back with a color combo that I loved and a sketch that immediately inspired me when I saw it. This card is a "hybrid" of both of those cards. Click HERE and HERE to see them.
I know, I KNOW...I'm really using that butterfly punch I recently purchased. I promise, this will be the last card with the butterflies for a while.So, back to that style-thing...I guess mine includes fun colors, lots of shapes and textures...and bling! I love details. Sometimes I obsess over them. But that's not necessarily a BAD thing, is it? :) I knew I wanted to make this card for the DT call and as I got it finished, I liked it so much and decided to make 7 more of them to share with a swap I participate in every month. I used a recently retired set, Punch Potpourri, simply because I was hooked on that stinkin' butterfly. Haha!
Here is the inside of the card, with another stamp from the same set:So, there you have it. Thank you so much to the gals at Our Creative Corner for the opportunity to apply to their great team.
