Brights Collection

I finally pulled out my shoe box swap cards from Convention. I know, I know… I am almost a little ashamed that I have not shared them since July! For a while, I just did not feel like taking pictures after pictures and then cropping and adding the copyright… but Sunday I did  just that … finally!

The first card I am going to share uses the Bright Collection




While the colors are pretty, it’s not something I would select, because I think they intimidate me a little *hehehee*. They sure do make a statement!

There is also lots of shapes and texture on this card. But that’s not it! When you open it, you see this:


And while lining a darker card with a white piece of Cardstock is nothing new to me… the used of a strip of Designer Series Paper (DSP)on a side as border, is genius to me!

Cool Idea… Gotta remember to do every now and then. This is also a great way to use up some of our DSP stash!
