Find Good

I played the current My Favorite Things sketch challenge:

and made this:

This card was 100% influenced by my failed efforts to make a card for the current Jingle Belles challenge. I'm going back to the drawing board on that one, but what fell out was die-cut you see above. That's what got me thinking about the circle on this sketch, and that I should use the thing to get it off my desk. You neat people are really missing out on a lot of inspiration!

So I took out my trusty Park Bench 6x6 paper, cut a few remnants to fit, colored the wreath with Copics, and stuck them all to the card base. Yes, the CARD BASE. I didn't even use a white layer on this one. *feels forehead*

I went looking for an MFT sentiment to fit in that space, and though I tried to use one of the Twisted sets, I ended up with a nice sentiment instead. I don't think I've ever inked it before, even. I wonder what that says about me. Hmmm ....

Lastly I added a miscellaneous button and called it done.

I am now in the throes of starting over with my Jingle Belles card. I. will. be. victorious. I hope. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Products used: misc button, Tombow adhesive, and the following:


  1. This is another beauty Leslie. You are SO inspiring! I need to get busy and finish off some cards :)

  2. Great papers together, I am getting an optical illusion, looks almost as if your chevron piece is on the interior of the card.

  3. Excellent card! Brilliant idea to color that die with markers - I never thought to try that! DOH! And you must be bleeding from the ears at not using a Twisted sentiment. I think I heard you screaming from here. ;)

  4. So very pretty Leslie! Thanks for joining along with MFT :)

  5. That's really pretty. I like the combination of the papers and the wreath looks great.

  6. Ohhhh so pretty!!! Great job!
    No white layer??? *GASP*
    I agree, neat people so miss out on using miscellaneous awesome things you find on your desk!

  7. You nailed that circle in the inspiration photo. I had to laugh at your dissing the neat people. I said that myself the other day. Great soft colors on your card. I love those park bench papers myself.... I'm hoarding the pad currently. Neatly, though. hee hee

  8. SOOOOO fab, i really love this one, tho of course i'm sorry the JB thingie is givin' ya fits!!! can't wait to see what you come up with... tho actually... if you did this in "xmas colors" (with a "happy hols" sentiment) you'd be THERE, so at least you have a fall back, lol! <3


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
