I really like the email reminders "there is still time to play". With so much going on in the blog-esphere I don't always get around to creating cards for my favorite challenges, so the reminders are helpful. Thank you.
There are times that I look at a sketch and can visualize the papers and stamps I want to use. This was one of them. I started with craft paper covering the front base card. Perhaps the sketch triggered that.
Then I pulled out My Minds Eye 6 X 6 paper pad called Lost and Found. I love these double sided 6 X 6 paper pad collections. After I took the photo I put the card down on the paper pad opened to the page featuring the pop of orange/red and I thought that would make a great border. So I stopped blogging and made the change.
I cut the card base in half, I'll save and use the white half for stamping or scraps. I then trimmed the card front to allow for a quarter inch border then layered the card on top of the orange/red, then glue it to a new card base.
It's interesting how after I start blogging when I insert the photo I often see ways to improve it. Does that happen to you? Maybe I should consider other possibilities before attaching the front to the base.
I definitely prefer the bright border I think it adds more pop. What do you think? The sentiment stamp "Trail Blazer" is part of the Hero Arts collection I recently purchased so it was easy to use that, but I was thinking about adding "Petal Pusher" or "Ride On", I know I'm silly sometimes cause I'm having so much fun.
