Soooo out of my comfort zone...

Last night while I was organizing my craft room (it's my big project while I'm home from work for February vacation), I came across some papers I bought a long time ago and never used. I'm not sure exactly why I purchased them, and I'm sure I never used them because they are not me. You know, my style (whatever that may be!)

It was time to challenge myself.

I made this card for this week's CASE Study challenge, which is teamed up with the Play Date Cafe. The colors are black, green, and red- although slightly hard to spot, there is some green in the bird, and the matting around the sentiment.



So do I like how it came out?
.....not sure.

It's just not me.

  3. I hate that feeling, that a card is just not "me." But in this case I think the result is great! Always good to push ourselves once in a while, if nothing else than to redefine what *is* you. So glad you joined us at CASE Study!
