the best


Hey friends!!  Popping in with a card that I made for a couple of challenges:  Viva la Verve week 3 and Colour Me...!  I don't know about you, but I have way too many 6 x 6 paper pads that I have not used.  I'm trying to get better about that and so I found a couple pads that would work for the Colour Me...! combo and settled on the Teresa Collins Fabrications pad.   I used the lovely Verve set Let It Be for the sentiment and floral image.   After finishing the main panel I tried a little idea I learned from Jennifer McGuire (I don't follow her blog so I know if she shared this on her blog) during the Online Card Classes:  Clean & Simple 4 class.   After she finished her main panel she used fun foam trimmed to fit the panel instead of foam tape to give the panel its lift.  I had wanted to give it a try and finally was able to make it to Joann's and purchased a few sheets.  Using a piece of fun foam trimmed to fit your panel gives the panel more stability and there is no sagging in the spots where there is no foam tape.   I like that!  The only thing I'm not sure about is the adhesive that I used to adhere the panel is strong enough to keep a grip on it.  We shall see...




Thanks for stopping by...
