Look! A card!!!

I know, you're shocked, right??? This is a CASED card, but I really didn't know where to start after not crafting for over a month, quite honestly, and I really liked the look of this one. Plus it was done in purples and I needed a purple card, lol! I did dress it up a bit from the original, so it's not an exact copy. I got to use one of my new stamp sets, Too Kind, which I really like, but it's supposed to give a watercolor look and therefore doesn't stamp "perfectly". There's some bits that are purposely made to not ink up and I'm not going to say how many times I stamped it trying to get it all filled in before I realized that!!! Old dog, new tricks...you know how it goes! I really do like the finished card and the clean look of it. What do you think???

Recipe:
Stamps: Too Kind, En Francais
Paper: Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Wisteria Wonder chevron ribbon, Apothecary Accents framelit, dimensionals, Lacy Brocade embossing folder, TSG Just for You banner die, sponge dauber

You cracked me up! Sounds like something I would do--stamp and stamp, forgetting it was supposed to be artsy, sketchy looking--ROFL! It really turned out beautifully.

And oddly--via email I just got all five of your last blog posts at once! So maybe I will at least get them now--even if I am late to the party. Why is this doing this with yours? Oh well, I am here now. ;)
