A fave of mine....


I'm sorry, but I think that this card is GORGEOUS!!!  It is a CASE of one of the cards in the catty.  I changed several things:  the colors, the size of the squares, the horizontal element at the very bottom, the ribbon tied on the left is just one piece of fiber, the punch I used on the Whisper White layer, the brad is the element I added to that layer, and I didn't use bleach (as it appears in the catty) - rather I used my White StazOn.  In the pic it's a little hard to see the image stamped on the Baja Breeze, but it's there!! ;)  I LOVE this card, and I made it as a goody to give (along with the card you'll see tomorrow) to a friend who hostessed a workshop.  She doesn't live near me anymore so since her friends couldn't come and stamp I figured I could at least do some stamping FOR them.  I like to show levels of stamping in the samples I give people.  This one was fairly time consuming with the paper piercing, distressing the edges, dyeing the ribbon, etc.  It's not really an "easy" card, but it's not too hard either.  Maybe a moderate level.  Well, tomorrow's card was SUPER easy, but I think it turned out super cute.  You should be able to notice the difference though.  Hope you like this one!!!
