What was incredibly challenging for me on this card...was the sizing...the measurements and the layering...it needed as precise as could be on the measurements, otherwise the card would look skewed in the WRONG direction! LOL! So this one took me awhile...couple of hours actually...but...I really enjoyed putting it together! When I first got it all put together...I thought about adding some birds that came with the stamp set I used...but I walked away for a few minutes and thought about it...and decided I was going to leave it alone. Sometimes one of the best "artistic" things you can do with something you have created is WALK AWAY from it...come back...and THEN decide what you want to do with it...our internal "edit" function so to speak!
Ya'll have a great weekend. I am 100% sure I will post again before it's over...BUT...I'm trying to get a lot of scrappin acomplished before Sunday afternoon...so...I'll be blog happy somewhere in between! HUGS!!!!!
