I actually am not that happy with today’s card.  I was specifically trying to use a strip of patterned paper (inspired by a card on the cover of a magazine) as the starting point for the card and wasted a lot of energy trying to coordinate patterns and colours.

I *think* the card would have been okay if the placement of the image etc. wasn’t a bit too high on the base.

On the plus side, I did use a stamp that needed to be inked and I made a cute embellishment by running some felt through my cuttlebug and adding some glittery fun foam and a button.  I also think I was moderately successful mixing patterned paper from two different collections.

Here’s the card:

The cute, girly cards are not really my style but I am trying to use what I have and branch out with my layouts, choice of colours. (I tend to stick to the same things)

I’ll be back tomorrow with another attempt at a “non-Kelly” style card.
