So I stared at that white layer with the washi, then I spied a piece of Caribbean twine laying out, and declared it a match.
Sentiment, it needed a sentiment. This is probably where I got stuck before, but this time I stamped I love you on the left side. Afterwards, I realized I should have left room for some bling in the corner, but, well, no. What you see is what I ended up doing. Not my best work, but it's done and off my table.
Note: All whites are not equal. When you use a piece of remnant white for a layer, good luck finding a matching white card base. This is especially difficult if you're like me and have no brand loyalty yet, so your white remnants are from all over kingdom come. I plan to settle this issue one day, but for now it's a mish-mash, so I opted for a no-stress solution and layered it onto a Pool card base.
And yes, there is a BIG WHITE SECTION up there, but I'm pretending it's not there. I'd appreciate it if you'd do the same.
In other news, Sandy has come and gone, and I suffered not one bit. I had power the whole time, and I think I slept through the biggest winds. The Federal and local governments, all schools, and all public transportation were shut down, so with zero traffic it took me about 10 minutes to get to work. That part was sweet. It's back to normal today, though. I feel for all my East Coast peeps who didn't fare as well. Be safe, and I hope you get back to normal very soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
