When I first checked the sketch on Karen Giron's blog, I thought it might be hard to come up with an idea for it. The sketch was for a square card which I seldom do. My card's dimensions are 4 1/4" x 5". Not quite square, but close. It's definitely different, but I really liked the look. An idea popped in my head late last night, and surprisingly it was still there this morning! (That's a miracle all by itself!) I had to run down and see if there was a print that could pull off what I was planning. And I think this pinecone print is just perfect for this card. Whadiya think??
I Love It!! I hope you do too. Every once in a while I surprise myself, and this was definitely one of those times. There's lots of texture, some layers, and some bling too. What more could I add, I ask you?
