World Card Making Day!

Saturday, October 4, 2014

It's been a long day but I couldn't allow it to end without posting something that I made for World Card Making Day.  I got a late start but managed to put this together for the color challenge at Pals Paper Arts and the sketch from Cardabilities.

I'm not entirely sure it shows up on the photo but I started with some embossing paste and a stencil.  Then I layered some branches, a few punched flowers and a sentiment.  Easy peasy!

As I was contemplating World Card Making Day I was reminded that I had just started posting on Splitcoast Stampers around WCMD in 2008.  Curious, I went back to my gallery and found that the third card I posted there was for a WCMD SCS hosted challenge.  This was the beginning of my card-making adventure and as you can imagine the card is pretty awful but I will say that I still have the stamp set I used!  Sometimes it's fun to go back and take a look at your earlier creations and see how you've changed as a crafter.

Well I'm tired and going to call it a night.  WMCD will officially be over in my neck of the woods in less than an hour so I'm getting this in just under the wire!  Thanks for stopping by!
