So I know it isn't Tuesday....sorry to be posting this late! I had intentions of getting this up last night but Jason didn't get home till 9ish. I was flying solo as a parent. Boy, do I admire those out there that do that on a regular basis! You guys rock! I would be a mess! Jordan had basketball practice from 7-8 so it was a late bedtime!
The worst part about my late post was the build up! My original card was made in late November. It was for a sketch from Fresh & Fun. My original card was so so bad! It was when I was experimenting with my sponge dauber and faux stitching! I had intentions of giving to a friend of mine for her birthday but I ended up switch to another card at the last minute so this one has been staring at me for some time. Overall, there aren't many changes. I decided to go for wasabi textured base instead of the vanilla. I changed up the layers a bit but kept the main colors. I did without the sponging and faux stitching but kept the rest. I am much happier with this version, although not dramatic, the subtle changes really make the card more presentable.
