Out of my comfort zone...

Yes. This card SERIOUSLY stretched my crazy brain. I am really all about making A2 size cards...so this 6"x6" card was challenging. PLUS, I've been leaning towards CAS style lately...used to be out of my comfort zone so I continued to try and practice and now it's become my comfort zone. Not that I'm complaining or anything... ;D

Well, anyway...this card turned out so much more beautiful than I thought it would! :) And it is all thanks to a sweet friend. She gave me some AMAZING American Crafts pearly paper--and I used it to make this! :)

Here's the card~

And details~



It's soooo pretty. I'm thinking of framing it to remind myself that I really can do things that are outside of my comfort zone! ;) I'm so very grateful that God has given me the talent of paper crafting!!! :)

Oh, and speaking of out of my comfort zone, I don't like to beg, BUT...

I'm the other way Mynnette - I find it hard to do many layered cards! This one's great and I love the baubles stamped onto the textured card stock.
