Embrace Life

Hello from Salt Lake City! Not really...it's Tuesday night as I'm typing this post for you. But, I'm certain that as you are reading it today on Thursday, I am having a grand 'ole Stampin' Up! kind of time.

I created this card for Kazan's sketch from the 2 Sketches 4 You site. If you haven't visited this site yet, what are you waiting for? The site always has a collection of fun and diverse cards. New sketches are posted on Mondays. Go check it out!

This is not my favorite card. I was feeling rushed and stuck. Not a good combination. Does that ever happen to you? I guess sometimes we all have those moments, and we just need to move on. I do LOVE the Bali Breeze paper though. The colors and designs are just beautiful. I may have to order some more before it's gone for good.

Maybe some ribbon would help. Or a main stamped image. I actually made a stamped image, but didn't end up using it. Maybe it's just because it's not the best photograph. I really need to get one of those light tents for when I don't have daylight to work with. Okay, that's not what I call moving on exactly, but oh well! {Embrace Life recipe}
