Many thanks to the Operators at Stamping 411 for featuring my card in this weeks' Stampers Showcase!
This weeks' challenge over at Stamping 411 was to create something clean and simple following Saturday Sketch Challenge #232. Unfortunately for me, I have a real problem with CAS -- it doesn't seem right not to have something right in the middle of the card! CAS is definitely not my friend. Go over and check out the Operators challenge this week and see what you can come up with!
What you can't see: The paper rose was made according to Melanie Schulenberg's fab video tutorial over her beautiful blog, Pockets of Inspiration. The bottom edges of the top layer were cut using the new Edgelit.
What I should've done: Put pearls at the top of each upward scoop of the Edgelit. Maybe next time!
All products are SU! unless otherwise noted.
