I had gotten some Basic Grey Gypsy paper pack from a publication I work with and used it to create this card. I loved the bright colors and amazing patterns. Every once in a while I create a card that I just love but it gets NO love from any publications I submit it to. The rare part is that I LOVE it....so I keep trying. Well, after a fair amount of trying with this card I gave up... decided to bag it and move on. Well last week I thought it would be fun to just submit it to the Basic Grey gallery and much to my surprise they accepted it right away! It isn't a paid thing...but its fun to see this card get a little love after so many times being declined.
It might be a surprise that I used no stamps on this card, a rare thing for me I know... but after many years of patterned paper-a-phobia I try to create a non-stamped card every so often.
Here's a fun little trick: Use Stickles to adhere a transparency to a card. you get a little sparkle and stick all at once!
