I actually designed the graphics on this card while I was up in Germany. I may not have had my art supplies but I had my computer (where there's a will..........!) The graphics alone would have probably been enough but I didn't feel like it had any dimension to it. A card cannot be complete without RIBBON!!. I ended up having to add the flowers and brads after I had stamped the sentiment inside the cutout. I dropped the stamp!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am tellin ya, I have lost my MO JO!!!
I achieved the scalloped edge using a new paper cutter that I purchased in Germany. Each blade gives a different type cut. I thought this would be easier than me taking apart my corner rounder to create the scalloped edge. So far I have not had much success. Apparently I just can't cut a straight line! Can't seem to ever get a straight line using the decorator scissors either. Advice anyone?
Adam and I enjoyed spending the day together but our trip to Cefalu' was nothing to write home about. The lunch was wonderful!! Well wonderful until I had a reaction to, I believe, the salsicia (sausage)!!! It tasted fabulous but all of a sudden I started swelling up like road kill ;o( The only thing that usually makes me do that is MSG but they swore that there wasn't any besides I didn't have problems breathing or have a migraine. I can see the bones in my feet again, as well as bend my toes, so I imagine I will survive.
I will post some photos tomorrow.. I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.
