Good morning everyone.
Today I'll show you one of the cards I've made this last week.
(I was up early, early taking pictures, though it's a day off from work - in fact I'm not going to work untill Tuesday afternoon ;)
On this card I made the inside first, then it fell into my mind that I had to make a frontside to the card as well - but how should I make it, with so much going on inside the card??!?
I used quite some time thinking, trying and moving papers and images around, but felt everything was too messy, too noisy... I needed I calm and simple front!
Then, on Wednesday, the sketch at Midweek Magnolias came, and everything fell into it's place. I knew which papers, image, embellishments, everything I'd use for the front was clear to me! Except the fact that I hadn't received the ribbon and charms yet...
Luckily it fell into my mailbox Thursday! So while my boyfriend installed the new dishwasher (a terrible week without it!!!), I finished this card :)
Further down you can find the list of materials I used for the card, so now I'll just show a few pictures of it:
