Miss You....

Hi all, happy Monday! I thought I'd share a quick card to jump start your week!

This card actually has a really funny story behind it. I used the new Friendly Reminders set from Flourishes. I had a card style in my mind, a sketch and so set out to stamp (Flourishes Classic White, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink) and color. After I colored my image (Copic collections in Fields, Water, Cool Neutrals, Warm Neutrals, Flesh Tones 2, and Dahlia). I picked up an oval Nestabilities die, got my image all set and rolled it through. Well, wouldn't you know, my image shifted and I ended up cutting off part of my coloring job. Let's just say my reaction wasn't exactly PG or even PG13! LOL!

So.... I set out to make lemonade out of lemons!

I thought the only way to save this was to make sure something else was put on my card to make it look like an off center image was the plan the whole way! So, I used a pair of oval punches, a message from the set and added a little bit of burlap string and filled the void with a tag style sentiment. The rest is just putting the pieces together -- a little dp, a little stitching, a punched border, some paper piercing and... voila! I actually like this layout better than the one I scribbled out and planned! Do you ever sketch out your cards? I'd love to know!

As they say in France -- C'est Tout! Have a fabulous day and I'll see you back here soon! :-)
