Paper, Ribbon and Gems
I'm back with a second posting for today. I'm so happy that I can get on the Internet. This card was made from just a few of the fabulous Blog Candy items that I won from Carol over at Our Little Inspirations. I have many more items to use, but I wanted to start with these for today. I already posted a card for OWH's Stars and Stamps today, but this one fits the bill also so I may enter this one too. This image, from a retired SU set, seemed to pair up pretty well with this beautiful paper, which is from Webster's Pages, and then the ribbon reminded my of boating rope, so I had the beginnings of a card. The gems, which I normally use because I love them so much, this time HAD to be used to cover a dot from a Copic Pen which did not belong. The lady's shirt is now dotted for the very same reason. I take Copic Coloring lessons from Suzanne Dean over at Color Me Creative Classroom and she taught us to never take the top off of a Copic Pen over your image because it may spot or splash and I was guilty of doing exactly that. Sorry Suzanne. I always tell people that I am not a very creative person, but I am completely experienced at covering up boo boos because I make a lot of them. Practice makes perfect, I guess. I have boo boos down to perfection. LOL "Thinking of You" would have been my choice for a sentiment for this card, but I liked the way it looked without one, so i decided not to use anything. I am happy with how this card came out and I hope Carol will be pleased to see how I used some of her blog candy. Thank you for stopping by again today to spend another minute here with me. I really appreciate it. Have a great night. HEY! The SUN just came out here. First time in 7 days. YAAAAY! I'll be back tomorrow.
