It's that time again - time to share my card for Round 2 of Gallery Idol.
materials: cardstock: Bazzill; patterned paper: Girls Paperie, American Crafts, Sassafras Lass; string: Divine Twine; floss: DMC; paint: Plaid; die cutter: Silhouette
I filled up the shape with a variety of the flowers (they were cut onto 3 different patterns) then added a handful of french knots for texture. What really drove the design home was that quote, which I found online. It's by Aesop (of fable fame) from The Jay and the Peacock. I like that the moral speaks to the value of being good on the inside - that the superficial exterior stuff isn't what makes a person.
Oh, how grateful I am that I will be traveling this week and distracted by CHA - last week felt so long waiting and wondering if I was going to make it through. I'll definitely share the 'b' card later in the week.
Want to give a special shout out to my pal Jan who helped me decide which card to submit this week. She's an amazing cardmaker - you can see her gorgeous creations here on her blog. Thank you Jan!
