I like to focus on the image so she is definitely a larger size (the beauty of digitals from Heather Valentin, creator of Lacy Sunshine) on a 6x6 card blank by The Paper Cut. Their product is so smooth and a good weight! I matted her with a bright pink mini polkadot cardstock and used paper lace made by a friend, thanks Pam, to trim around the edges. I got quite a variety from her a couple years ago-she makes it by cutting strips of cardstock, using straight punches down both sides-2 different patterns. Then when you need it you just trim to fit your creation! It lays flat and makes it so feminine. A sentiment and buttons trim off the front. On the inside, I used a multi-hued shimmery paper, paper heart and a great sentiment for any loved one.
NOW, the true confession is that this wasn't my first card--you know the saying about making lemonade out of lemons? Driving home from work, I'm planning on getting my card posted, ready for the launch...when my sub-conscious kicks in and alerts me that I've used the wrong color combination...just doing what felt good with the image. I will show you that card also because it IS adorable AND it shows the versatility of the image and how it takes on a whole different personality with different colors.
The beauty is that now I have 2 cards to share with loved ones and that is a good thing. When coloring it, I'd made an error that couldn't be removed so I added the white Frantage as a "ruffle".
Guess the thought is that when you do make mistakes, don't let it get you down and bummed out! Find a way to cover it up and "enhance" the end result--no one will ever know, unless you spill the beans! Thanks for stopping by and here's to LUV!
