Am I late? I hope I can still get in to the Tea Party, but I bet I'll have to sneak in the back way. See my card has corners and it's supposed to be round. I tried, rahly I did (said in my best Katherine Hepburn voice-which is hard for a southern girl, dontcha know?)
I started out round...you can see by the center layers. But this card just wanted to be square. Who am I to argue? So I'll just be hangin' out by the back door and hopefully I won't be alone.
I stamped the crochet circle image 3 times, colored two and cut them out in layers. One water colored flower only. Two was the the inside circle, cut w/ a Spellbinders circle. Third was the whole image cut w/ an ODBD matching crochet circle die.
For the big circle and square bg, I used water colors to make the bg and then stamped the crochet bg on top. I stamped and cut (w/ the matching ODBD border die) 4 strips of the crochet border to make the frame. As I was putting it together, I got to looking at the negative strips and decided to use them as well. So I added a little color to them and attached them offset behind the crochet borders. The sentiment is also on one of the negative strips. The finished card measures 5" square.
Thanks so much for looking! Close ups will be on my blog in just a bit. The Write Stuff

love the vibrancy of the colors and all your details, don't think you'll be alone at the back door, besides, who says that you didn't design some of the dodge ball packaging? sure wouldn't want all the bling getting damaged on the way to the tournament.

Late? Oh my word- not! And even if so, how completely worth it! I am still playing with his set and love what you have done. Classic my friend!

Julie, this is a gorgeous card! The back door is where all the fun people hang out and maybe you can score a cookie while the Mudder is not looking!!
