OK, so this card was made specifically for 2 challenges Crazy 4 Challenges & Page Maps that Flourishes is sponsoring. Keeping my fingers crossed. You didn't have to use a Flourish stamp, but I did anyway. BIG GRIN
I really like the way the card turned out. It's rare I make square cards (cost more to mail), but that was one of the options in the challenge. An other was using 2 designer papers, so I pulled down one of my stash bags that I hadn't been through in ages and found everything I needed in there. Sheesh there was some nice stuff, so it's not going back up just yet... The card also has a ton of various elements, yet still feels uncluttered. I surprise myself sometimes... I really don't like using designer papers or following sketches, they seem to limit me, but this time they really worked out well.
Anyway, you can see more details and descriptions by clicking on the card image. Enjoy
And I'm also using a Quietfire Design Gothic Alphabet border stamp that I love.
