I have used the challenges at Create with Connie and Mary and retro sketches for my card this week. It has been a while since I have had time to play in their challenges, so I am hoping this is the start of me getting back in my groove. :)
I apparently was not thinking clearly when I started on my card, because I had to start over FOUR times! When I was masking off to create my background, the tape kept sticking to my cardstock and when I would try to pull of the mask, it would tear my card. Ugh! Finally I realized it was never going to work so I cut strips of cardstock to mask with and taped them to my work paper instead of my card. Worked like a charm! lol
The stamps I used are from two different My Paper Pumpkin kits. I just love them and need to remember to pull them out more often! I especially love the big "seriously." We say that all the time around here, so it really makes the card seem more personalized!
