Combining Elegance and Comfort


I gotta say that I love the card I'm sharing today.  I never thought I would make a card, look at it and think, "Hey, this is totally ME!"  But I have.... 

I think this card completely represents my style and personality.  I love pretty things (who doesn't?), but I am all about comfort.  Being comfortable, having a comfortable home and hopefully making people feel comfortable around me.  I'm a "jeans" sort of gal who loves a bit of elegance thrown in the mix.  I have a passion for many things (red.)  I like to have fun ( polka dots are fun.)  My life is filled with wonkiness (ric rac.) I'm pretty touchy feely (fuzzy paper and embossing.)  And like the sentiment on the bottom, you can add some glitz on the outside of me, but inside I'm still comfortably worn and imperfect in so many ways.



I made this card with the Moxie Fab Fun with Fabric Challenge and over at FlourishesTimeless Tuesday #68 they have a challenge to make your own flower. I used the CPS sketch as my inspiration (with a slight alteration.) Stamp Something is to use 2 of something.  I used 2 colors....provided cream does not count....if it does then I used two papers:) Lastly, this is for the Pile It On challenge~ out of the box.  I think my card is pretty out of the box in all the elements.  After my analogy of the card and my personality you may just consider me "out of my mind."  Hopefully. that will count too:)

I will have more details on how I made this card Saturday.  It will be featured on my Guest Designer spot over at A Little Crafty Place( the Die Cuts R Us Design Team Blog.)

Hope you will stop back then for all the details on this card and a few more.

Happy Thursday!  Mine is FULL of kid stuff~ lunch on the bleachers, a play at school, ortho appts, a play again!  I'll be hopping for sure!
