No, I did not make this up...I CASEd it from this card on SCS. Fresh Cuts is one of those sets I had to have because of a sample card I'd seen, and even though I have tons of the Fresh Cut Notes, too, I have never managed to use the set for a workshop, or even a card, with much success. Until NOW!
Every once in a while I take a few moments to cruise the Splitcoast gallery, and I 'favorite' things I think I can use for workshops. Some months I have better luck on my own, but sometimes, like NOW, I have zero ideas and a workshop looming one short week away.
I liked everything about the original card, but I knew I'd have to use something in place of her Dew Drops (non-SU ... you know how that goes for workshops, though my customers really couldn't care less). I also found I was running low on Taffeta Choc Chip ribbon, so I substituted grosgrain. It's not quite as elegant, but it does the job. I also have issues using dark card stock as my card base, since I'd need to put a piece of white paper inside for writing the message, and I did not feel like dealing with that, so I made the base Whisper White and just made the Choc Chip another layer. This baby is hefty, lemme tell ya!
I have three of my four cards planned and made, so just one more to go. And I did decide to use the Lady Bug card as one of the projects since it was all SU. Sweet!
Yawn, time to hit the hay for me. I need to focus on getting my taxes mostly done this weekend. It's a psychological thing about not waiting until March to get started, so I'd best hop to it on Saturday! :-) Thanks for stopping by!
