FTL 124 – Too Kind

January 26, 2011 at 9:32 am 1 comment

I was up until 2:00 a.m. this morning making my card for the Fall-to-Layout 124 challenge. Here is the sketch we had to work with:

Now, you wouldn’t think that making a card with this clean & simple sketch would take me 2 hours, but it did! I played with the frame around the sentiment, using three or four of them until I found the one I liked best, and had to stamp it a few times because I smudged it, then tried using my nesties a few times until I found the one I liked best too. I didn’t have the sketch in front of me when I was making the card, so the bottom scallop layer is a little lower than it should be, but hey, we’re given a little creative license, right? Anyway, by the end of it all, this is what I was able to muster up:

Here are the goods:

Card Stock – 110 lb. white Strathmore, Basic Black (SU), Ruby Red (retired SU)
Patterned paper – My Mind’s Eye
Stamps – Aviary and Whimsical Words (both SU), Nestie-friendly Fancy Tags frame (StampingScrapping)
Ink – Versafine Black Onyx
Accessories – black gingham ribbon, scallop border punch (SU), Nestabilities Labels 4 (#3)

That’s it! Thanks for having a look today!
