365 Cards Challenge


I saw the cute card that Amy did (her blog is Tsuruta Designs) and wanted to play too. It's a little more vivid in real life, but our cold, rainy weather made it hard to photograph today.

Here's my version of the card for 365 Cards March 1st challenge and the sketch:

Just about all of the stuff on this card I won from Lisa Beeson's blog, Papercutting Kind of Day when she had blog candy! She was super generous and sent a pad of Paper Salon Papers, Pink shaped tag cards, embellishment trims to coordinate, and two great inspiration magazines that I wanted! The flower was x-acto cut from one of the sheets of cardstock, the 4 patterns that make the center square show the nice variety of prints (and they're double sided as well!) Greeting was punched out with the SU word punch on one of the papers, and the circle center of the flower is the same paper that's shown on the right panel. Fun, huh? I'd never bought Paper Salon's paper products before (only their stamps), but I will definitelybe looking for them now!

My eye is still not doing well, so I'm going back to the opthamologist tomorrow. blech.

Have a nice evening...and remember to watch Desparate Housewives tonight! I missed seeing it last week with the awards show on :(
