it's been too long...

I always intend to blog regularly but life gets in the way. Hi, I'm Mel and I'm an infrequent blogger. Thanks for viewing my blog today.

I stepped into the craft room today to make a card for one of my teammates that is celebrating her one year anniversary at work. Of course I rarely stop at just one card. #crafterproblems

I really like the color and simplicity of this card. The sentiment is very subtle but still visible because the white embossing stands out well against the sky blue. I could have stopped there, but die cutting the flower left a great negative.

I am really happy with the way this card. The patterned paper I found in my stash is fun and unexpected for a flower. I also like the way the sentiment runs up the side of the card. This one is unconventional and quirky.

Now I don't know which card to give her. I guess there are much worse problems to have.
