I struggled with this technique...not because it was hard, but because I really wanted to use flowers like Lizzie did in her example, but kept thinking that I always do flowers and need to think outside the box a bit more. So I decided to give Forest Floor: Summer a try since I hadn't played with it yet and came up with this:
I was thinking of a Summer picnic basket with fresh strawberries, and while it turned out ok, it just didn't thrill me. Although with ALL the fussy cutting I did (I was too cheap to buy the dies...grrrr!!), this card ought to count for something!!
So back to the drawing board. I decided to give Quilted: Summer a try and came up with this:
I added a small pinwheel to the upper left of the card because it looked too plain with no stenciling up there and then added a few sequins to finish it off. I like it, but... Maybe I'll just save both of these for Transformation Tuesday and see what else I can come up with. I know, I know...I'm my own worst enemy, but I think we all have cards like this where something just doesn't click for us. For today though, they are what they are!

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
