Shabby Love Story Card

I think I made this for a sketch challenge that I didn’t enter… AGAIN! Ugh…

I finally got some new lighting (Happy Anniversary to me!) so I hope that my pictures will look better from now on. (I don’t know yet what this one will look like as my monitor isn’t great. I check my iPhone to see if they are too dark etc. Not sure if that is accurate either!) At least one side of the background won’t look greenish while the other looks pinkish! I have two lamps with identical day light bulbs yet one has a  different colour cast than the other. Weird…

This is a new (to me) set from MFT. I love the fronts they pair in these sentiments. I cut my paper carefully to eliminate any Valentine's sentiments or images as this is from a paper pack called Fourteen. I designed the card so as to leave as much of the GORGEOUS background paper as possible. Ain’t it purdy? As you can see, this is an easel card. I like making them because I can work on a card front and still decide at the last minute to make it an easel-style card. Other specialty cards take lots of measurements and planning. I don’t think of them until it’s too late.

Enjoy, Rebecca
