Have you ever had one of those days where it seems everything you had meant to be part of the creative process of a card just did not work out. Finally after many frustrating issues I decided to turn back to an old trick we did in the early days of my stamping career. That is to tear around the image and create a rugged and ragged distressed border. I added the focal image to a piece of navy and beige gingham pattern paper and added some faux stitches along with a torn sentiment and this is the end result.
And you would think that would be the end of my frustration but alas, I also had trouble getting a decent photo. This seemed to be the best one of the lot. I also took one from a different perspective and that isn't too bad either so I am featuring that below.
Here is my supply list:
Navy and white duplex card stock for the card base
White glossy card stock on which I stamped the beach girl
Gina K. Designs plaid paper from the Casual Friday Paper Pack
3D Gel Stitches by Cloud 9 Design
#SD103 Beach Girl by Technique Junkies

Such as it is I am still entering this in the following challenges:
Mod Squad Blog Challenge-Lazy Days of Summer
Double D's Blog Challenge-Simply Gingham
And, I also have wonderful news. We got 3/4 of an inch of rain last night and even though it was a very stormy way of getting it we are so very grateful to the Lord for blessing us. This will make things perk up and look greener around here.
A big thank you to all who are so faithful in stopping by my blog and for all your uplifting messages. It is those thoughts you leave that make me feel so loved. I hope your Sunday is going well too!
