This week it's my turn to be the hostess at Freshly Made Sketches and I actually ended up with two slightly (and I do mean slightly) different versions of my card!
I used a bit of texture on one of the Very Vanilla layers then created a stamped layer using the background stamp Canvas and Summer Silhouettes. I added a bit of Natural ribbon and a strip of Lucky Limeade cardstock. I found some Earth's Elements eyelets in my stash and although I'm sure these are supposed to be Old Olive they are an EXACT match to the Lucky Limeade cardstock. I wound some baker's twine through they eyelets and thought I was done.
Then I photographed the card and realized that something didn't look right. I don't know about you but sometimes it's not until I see the card through the filter of my lens that I see the "true" card and am able to critique it in a whole new way. For this card I wasn't happy with the transition from the stamped layer and the natural ribbon so I went back and added a thin strip of cardstock between the two.
Although I like it better I think I should have added some color behind the larger embossed layer. I think the adhesive is stuck fast though, so it's not going anywhere and this card is staying as is!
Don't forget to stop by Freshly Made Sketches and check out the DT cards. They are amazing, as usual, and sure to give you loads of inspiration!
