hello

Hope you are having a great summer.  I am home for a bit but really busy!  Will try to get to my crafty table at the end of the week (so I can play along with some challenges) but until then, here's another publication reject.  I stamped the flower a few times, cut out a whole one and curled up the edges, then adhered individual petals in behind.  Quite like the effect, what do you think?


ETA - Jocelyn mentioned that I should submit this to the CAS-ual Friday's Embossing Challenge (CFC16) this week, so I am!  Thanks Jocelyn!

Thanks for all of your great comments on my cards this summer.  I really appreciate it and am very flattered!  It's interesting for me, now that I have been submitting for a while, to see what gets accepted for categories I've been rejected for.  I'm trying to learn from it and will be much more focused when I get back to submitting in the fall.

Take care and have a great day.  Thanks for stopping by.
Glenda

  3. Gorgeous card--love the flowers! The curled up petals are so pretty. I really like the embossing in the background (you should link this up to CAS-ual Friday's challenge). It must be nice to be home! Oh, and I know what you mean about seeing the accepted cards...I had the same thought last week. You just never know, do you?

  6. I really like the way you altered the flower to make it appear bigger. I have to try it! And the green ribbon leaves are just so sweet. Love them.

  9. I think that there is a better word for rejection. This certainly doesn't appear to be a rejection, it is so beautiful! I really like the effect of dry embossing white paper, and leaving it alone. Great way to highlight it with the beautiful bloom!
