I chose this (http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=80269) card of hers to CASE.
---I figured with the mono-chromatic look, that I couldn't go wrong.
---I chose the lavender lace color because I knew I had embellishments to go with it.
---However, over half way through the card--I realized that the embellishments were still at my Mother-in-Law's house. So I fudged. Silver works, right??
---I took a risk with the gel pen. And though I like the dots--I hate the little scallops that I put in the corners of the mat. Lesson learned, but frankly--I don't take enough risks in stamping--so I think it is successful.
So this is my story and my card. ;)

Your card is absolutely gorgeous! I love the layering of the panels with that beautiful background stamp....It is really a very pretty card. As for the doodling, I really think it adds to the card and I think your risk was one well taken. I know what you mean....I start hyperventilating when I think...should I do it, should I not...Then in the end it usually comes out okay! This one came out more than Okay, it is gorgeous! Thank you for spending time in my gallery and for sharing this gorgeous card!
