So here is my card for Kazan's sketch #19 at 2 Sketches 4 You.
If you've been to my blog before, you may have noticed that I try to do a close-up shot to provide better detail in the photograph. This time when I looked at the close-up, I noticed that the ribbon had already begun to fray a bit, and the sticker in the corner looks worn in places. But I think that's what makes a handmade card special - it's not perfect, and the beauty and sentiment still come across to the receiver.
Today is actually my birthday, and it has been a wonderful day. I treated myself to a Cuttlebug, which I used to create the embossing effect on the blue card stock. The gingham paper, blossoms and button are all Making Memories Chloe's Closet. The journal sticker is Colorbok Friendly Forest, and the sentiment is a rub-on. Thanks for looking!
