An old friend...

I just realized I forgot to post this card.  I was so proud of it, and then promptly shoved it aside like an old shoe. 

:(  <~ sad Erin

I usually shy away from large, colorful prints.  It's just not who I am.  My OCD makes me a person who likes simple, plain, organized, quiet.

But I had to find something to do with the paper.  It was part of a Scrappy Jak monthly challenge kit and the project deadline was looming.  This print screams "HEEEELLLLLOOOOO!"  So, I paired it with the item that I reach for every time I am not sure which direction to take a design.

I never met a button I didn't like.

So I put buttons on it, and literally made it say "hello".

The flower rhinestones are slowly becoming my #2 favorite item to use as an embellishment.

So many wonderful people said they wanted me to make a card for them.  I just wish I knew where she got the paper that she put in the kit!  I also won that month's prize.  I wasn't based on design, it was a random picking, but still - it made me feel extra special.

If you would like to find out more about Scrappy Jak, search her on facebook.  It is awesome.  PS)  I don't have facebook, thank you very much.  And I somehow still find a way to elbow my way into all the fun.  :::wink:::

Off to the Crop Tower...
