Your Love

Hello, Crafty Peeples!
This card is really late, it should have posted Monday.  But Life Issues reared their "non creative heads" and demanded my full attention.  Anymahoo, this week over at The Outlawz, The Greetings Challenge is  KRAFT, BURLAP AND BEADS.  My original plan was to create something using one of the stick pins my friend Teresa sent me almost two years ago.  Her pins are so pretty; I can't  use them (crazy, right?)

September 27, 2013

 I think I have found the style of card that will become my "go to" card base.  I don't know why it appeals to me so much, but it does.  I am also happy, again, to be able to create without using an image.

I struggled with the center of my flower.  I needed to pick up the brunt orange from my CS and my Leaves.  I tried pearls, brads and button, none of which gave me the effect I was seeking.  Just as I was about to swap out my flower, for one made from crinoline, I decided to try a big glob of copper glitter glaze.  It was a round ball until my hubby stuck his finger into it!  Men, really?

Isn't this wonderful printed burlap just fabulous!  I only have a yard, so I use it sparingly!

I love it when a project come together on my drafting table just as I put it together in my head.
