I'm neurotic!



As you may have gathered by now if you read my blog, I am completely neurotic! I'm ok with that though!

I put way too much worry into a card, it is just a piece of flipping paper at the end of the day, but no I have to turn a piece of paper into the Mona Lisa!

I am trying really hard though to stop being so neurotic and just make something I like.

Well today, I have made a card that I absolutely love! HURRAH! you all shout! :)

I love this card. It is using Imeldabella from www.stampingbella.com. I also used my new, favorite sentiment set Paper Tray from www.papertreyink.com. The double sided paper is from Pebbles Inc.

The thing I always struggle on the most is the layout of my card, so last night I decided to print out all the old sketch challenges from Splitcoast and just pick the ones that I like and didn't try the first time around. Why didn't I do this earlier? They have really inspired me.

My favorite part of this card, the frayed ribbon! :) It is the Technique Lover's Challenge this week and I think the frayed ribbon really looks like hair! I know, I know, it doesn't really, but I think it does.

Wow! Love this! My favourite bit is the way you painted the ground she's standing on - v effective. Although the hairy fibre is very cool too! :)
