Lovely day


I *love* this card. Everything about it really. I submitted it for the Paper Crafts sketch call last month (or Feb??). Not selected. No idea why. This is the only card I actually think they were wrong in not choosing, lol! Meaning, other cards they didn't pick, it didn't bother me. No matter how hard I worked on them, I just don't have an issue with rejection- mainly because I grow to love my cards soooo much that many times I can't imagine giving them to someone who won't cherish them as much as I love making them!! (so to send it away to some *unknown* person left me a little concerned! ha!)

But, this was a unique and stand out card, in my very humble opinion. PTI Shimmer cardstock with cuttlebug embossing. SJ ink and mat cardstock and SSeries sentiment. The double hearts came from a Stampabilities set (that I made sure could still be gotten too by the masses).

I know I will use this for a precious couple's anniversary (I might even make a duplicate!) but it could be a wedding day card. :)

Enjoy!

Kristin, I love tone-on-tone (especially in white), and with your embossing . . . this is an elegant, looks-harder-than-it-is card, which would seemingly be exactly what Paper Crafts is looking for! They really missed out. :-)
