Good morning February. It is such a beautiful day out this morning - so mild with no wind. Completely unheard of for mid-Canada!
This is my 2nd attempt at a card sketch. My first card is still sitting beside me, looking all wrong, hideous really. I *might* be a bit hard on myself but I am so happy that I tried the sketch again from scratch. The old card has potential, I just still need to perform that card surgery I was talking about on Monday :)
This is my first attempt at emboss resist. It didn't turn out quite how I expected, but in the end I think it gives a nice shabby/vintage feel. I prefer pearls over gems!
