This card was a lil challenging for me. Why you ask? Well, for anyone who has stamped with me, I tend to be a bit anal retentive. I like things to be precise. I have been working on getting over that, and have really let go of a lot. This card has a two step image, and I wanted the second image to be stamped precisely and perfectly on the first image. It took me two tries, boy was the first one off, but I got it pretty well on the second time, and forced myself to say it looked good even if it wasn't perfect. Stamp Club has helped me a lot with letting go of insisting on everything being perfect, because I don't have all my own supplies to just do it over and over and over and over and over again :) The green piece of paper was crumpled up like a piece of trash and then flattened back out for a great aged effect. With the torn white piece on top of it...I just love how this turned out!! The ribbon was a white piece of SU grosgain ribbon that was colored with a SU ribbon. I love that you can color SU ribbon to make whatever color you might need!!!
