I'm not happy with this card. A group of us were challenged to use this image somehow in a card, and I just couldn't get it to turn out the way I wanted to. The really sad part is, I was the one who chose this image. Yikes!!! What an example I set, huh? I used river rock to discolor the paper on the main image to fit the bg dp and the non-su paper.

OMG! Tosh, you are a silly girl thinking all along that your card was not up to snuff! It is awesome, I absolutely love your sentiment and how wonderful this looks on Riverrock. Your stitching with the twine is an awesome addition as well as your matting once again being perfect. I gotta tell you, I am disappointed...I was expecting an ugly card! Ah Haa!! You just can't do it my friend!

I KNEW it! I KNEW it! There's no way you can make an ugly card, Tosh! What's not to like about this? It's clean; it's crisp; the hemp is a cool addition, and I love the color you chose for matting. I love the sentiment, too. Hey, Gerti! Did Tosha really make an ugly card and you replaced it????

I think it's so cool that you ladies are challenging each other, and I love to see what each of you creates ... I'm not sure what you're talking about with this card ... it's a winner to me ... great colors and sentiment and I love the twine.
