365 Cards - #48

Ok I need to clear something up with you all before I show my entry for today.  Please don't misunderstand me about yesterdays challenge. I never meant that I didn't like Amy's challenge at all. . . sorry Amy, really I am.  I thoroughly enjoyed the process of making the card but did not like my own choices of stamps etc is all.  I think the concept of it was fantastic and when I saw all the other beautiful entries I thought 'of course, of course, now I see what I could have done'  DUH!!  When I read everyone's lovely comments I just thought I had better clarify what I meant.

Anyway that being said today's card also posed a dilemma for me I thought 'how am I going to present this' but I came up with an idea and went from there lol.  You should see inside my head sometimes. . . not pretty girls!!!  I have a scoring blade thingo on my cutter so I just made it up as I went along but I think it turned out ok.  You be the judge and see for yourself.  So without further dithering from me here is my entry for #48. . .


I did the grid pattern on the vanilla cardstock.

As you can see on the blue cardstock I did a grid pattern as well

Over all the card turned out really well I thought.  Anyway in the meantime. . .

I love this card but then I liked yesterdays card too, hope you feel better about your card today. I knew you didnt like your card yesterday and you were not saying you didnt like the challenge, I must admit sometimes I just dont know how I get there in the end with mine but thats what challenges are all about

Another beautiful make! I love the colors, with the swirls it just reminds me of water (which I love) Great (and neatly done) score pattern. Have a great weekend.

This is such a chic card - I love the color combination and that fact that you carried the scoring from the vanilla to the blue. Very lovely.
