And here is my card . . .
The pattern paper I had came from a Studio Calico kit. I wanted to cut my circle using the MFT Cross Stitch die, and one of the patterns had summer phrases that I thought would be a good thing to center and showcase within the dies. And so using four different circles in the set, I cut away.
I also used word dies . . . happy birthday . . . from MFT Blueprints 26 set.
It is definitely not my usual style of card . . . a stretch for me, indeed.
But my feminine card was right up my alley! I love how this card turned out. I used the color combination at the Pals Paper Arts Challenge . . .
Although my shade of purple is definitely a little lighter than what was intended.
I used the negative of the "friend" word die, as I loved the bold color with the white behind it.
I've been know to create linear cards and scrapbook layouts. This is definitely a linear card. I love some linear goodness.
