I first thought I would stick exactly to the sketch and make a big flower to put where their's is, but then I decided that was too predictable, even for me. :) The quote from Daring Adventure fits perfectly in that framelit, so I decided to add it in place of the flower. I should take this moment to apologize to Helen Keller. Her name never seems to make it onto my cards because then it doesn't fit this framelit quite so perfectly! I'm sure that is some big faux pax, but it is what it is! So sorry, Helen. It IS an amazing quote.
My favorite thing about my card is that it has so much texture and dimension. The Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White cardstock is spritzed with ink; the Early Espresso cardstock is embossed with the Houndstooth folder; the Night of Navy DSP is scored, folded and sanded; the Pumpkin Pie cardstock is embossed with the new Early Espresso embossing folder and popped up on a double stack of Dimensionals. This is one of the reasons why I cannot push myself to do digital scrapbooking and cardmaking. The main reason, really! I love it when you can feel all of the different elements of a card. The flat printing of digital just doesn't do it for me. Maybe one day I will try hybrid...maybe.
