365 Cards Sketchy Sunday - July 26

The 365 Cards sketch for today was a hard one for me. I think I put this card together and took it apart 20 times! I finally got it finished an put it aside, because after a point, you do more harm than good!

I used a scrap of Basic Grey paper and some cardstock scraps. I am not really sure the yellow works, but since it's a color I'm not fond of, I made myself stick with it. I cut all the circles and scallops with Spellbinders dies. I love how they cut AND emboss.

The ribbon is also from my scrap bag. See a theme here? I hope you enjoyed looking today. See you tomorrow for another card, plus tomorrow is my "sign in" day at the MOSD blog, so check that out.

Just a reminder that we are having a special week at 365 Cards this week. It's reader appreciation week and every day this week one of the 365 Cards followers will be featured. Stop by and check out the extra talent! I am sure you will not fail to be inspired!

  8. Love it Gloria... actually, my entry for this challenge is an homage to yours... I 'stole' the flower idea. You're not going to turn me in to the authorities, are you?

    BTW, thanks for your encouraging comments ~ C
