Yes, I finally made it. And I enjoyed every minute of it.
I realize that I often put off making a card for a special someone because I want the card to be so special that I intimidate myself. What if it doesn't turn out ? What if my MoJo isn't in gear? And when I compare my cards to some of the gorgeous works of art in cardmaking land, I feel so inferior. Do you ever feel like that? Well, not to toot my own horn, but I do like the way this card turned out and the important thing to remember is NOT to compare. We are what we are and hopefully improving all the time. Comparison can be a very destructive thing - someone else is prettier, smarter, has a nicer house, etc., etc. But when we do the comparison the other direction, how blessed I am and shame on me for envy or jealousy! You didn't know you were going to get a sermon today, did you? Neither did I ! Heehee. So after that windy introduction, here is my card made with my new Verve set "Joyful Blooms" which is going to be so fun to play with.
Sentiment is embossed in white and I used liquid pearls on the flower centers.
