Now, this is a major change for me - nothing like stretching yourself a little is there, but there isn't one, yes, you read that correctly - NOT ONE Promarker on this card!!!! Shock, horror I know. LOL. I was fiddling about with my dies (yes, I suppose playing might be the better word, LOL), & the result was that I thought I would try my hand at layering my papers - edging & creating with nothing more than my Spellbinders. I can't say it was a quick card either, given that I wasn't using an image (so no colouring in), but I am not the most decisive of crafters & choosing papers, layout & embellishments is usually what takes my time up anyway. LOL. What is more with the papers being digital & therefore at the mercy of my printer they are more 'blue' than they were on screen. Still, there are greater things to worry about in this life than truculent printing - so more blue they will just have to remain. LOL.
Not sure what I think about it really, it has to be said - but 'nothing ventured nothing gained' as they say & Sarah will be receiving this card this weekend regardless! My indecision also meant that I wasn't sure how best to photograph the card. Angled to show the dimension (no envelope for this one of course), or my regular straight on shot. So you got both, as well as the inside of the card which echoes the layout of the front but without the very dimensional centre-piece of course or it wouldn't close!!! LOL.
