Muse Challenge 87 - Thanks, Kimberly!
Is it just me, or was September CRAZY? I somehow forgot that when the kids go back to school, so do I - I'm the Chair and Treasurer of our School Council and there's been so much going on that I have not been able to keep up at all!
This is my card for this week's Muse challenge, where Kimberly is our Guest Muse with this card:
I really wanted to do a super job with this - Kimberly is sweet, talented and full of cardmaking enthusiasm and support for all of us in this crazy little part of blogland. She and I work together on CASology and I really, really love this pretty card. But I ran out of time, and this is my first (and only) draft. While there are things I like about it, including the scripty font (Clearly Besotted Stamps die), the raised panel and the colour scheme (including the nifty fire opal gems which shine both orange and red), I wish I had more time to take it to the next level. Know what I mean?
In addition to time pressure (or maybe contributing to the time pressure), I recently got a new phone, which means a new camera which seems to be extra shaky, resulting in a slightly blurry photo (meaning I need to be more stable!). I'm also trying out a new photo editor to streamline my process and it seems fine so far, but you know that new software always takes a while to get used to.
There's a bit of time left for you to link up - the deadline is Monday morning at 8 am. At that time you can vote for your 3 favourites until Tuesday at 8 am. The results will be posted at noon on Tuesday.
