Tell me, why do I still have the wooden salad bowl set we received for a wedding gift 31 years ago? Wet wood is my 'fingernails on the chalkboard' item so we have never used it. Nor the wooden salt and pepper shakers. Have I honored the gift giver by keeping these items this long? Can I finally get rid of them? I voted 'Yes!'
While trying to stay awake watching the Olympics, I finally pulled out my July Key Ingredients kit from Taylored Expressions. I had a plan for ONE card, but as I worked on it, it kept changing because I kept finding different sketches to try. So, through all the changes it took more than one (translation, many) night to finish. Well, as I still have more pieces due to the changes, I don't think I've officially finished! What else is new?
I love the papers in the kit. I think (know) I need more of the Cosmo Cricket Tea for Two paper!
My Favorite Things sketch called out saying I had to use it. Here's the sketch
and what I came up with.
Yes, I changed a few things. The banner became a butterfly, cut from the same paper as the bottom band. I used Glossy Accents and Enamel Accents on it for some shine. Three circles morphed into nine Hero Arts pearls and a rectangle became an oval with mat. At least the base remained the same, sort of! It has four sections. Okay, so I started with the sketch but headed off in my own direction.
