Good afternoon! Yesterday's card is off in the mail on its way to Grandma. The mailman literally just picked it up. :) Unlike yesterday's card (which ran away with me, apparently), today's card turned out exactly as I pictured it. I'm always a little bit giddy when that happens. This card is my very last for the Verve Release Challenges, but uses the very first of the sketches.
I stuck to a very simple color scheme, and relied on some more of my fabulous October Afternoon dp. Seriously, are you sick of this stuff yet?! 'Cause I'm not!!! I embossed the gorgeous frame in black and the popped up the whole thing on dimensionals. Some beautiful rippled ribbon (perhaps a new favorite ribbon treatment!), and lastly added some Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to the base of each flourish around the circle. So elegant with a little pop of polka dotted fun!
I'm feeling rather helpless sitting here at home today. Believe me, as much as I want summer to never end, I'm am dying to get into my classroom and start preparing everything. I have a few things here at the house that I can work on, but it's so small and unimportant compared to everything else that needs to be done. I think I've already checked my work e-mail about 4 times today hoping my principal has e-mailed to give me a time estimate. Alas, no luck so far. But I'm sure I'll still check it another 10 times today. :) I could always redirect all of this energy into some card making!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
