Throwback Tuesday #5


A sweet, delicate number up today!

The deets: every Tuesday, I will post a card that has been sitting in the draft closet too long. At the end of each month, I will randomly select a winner from all the valid challenge entries!

The challenge: link up an old papercraft related blog post, card photo, or post one of your old drafts/pictures! An additional entry will be given to those who comment on the Throwback Tuesday posts for that month.
The prize: a big ol’ box stuffed with scrapbooking goodies!
Sorry, but due to crazy shipping costs, this challenge is open to the US only!

My previous thoughts: 

Some Glossy Accents keeps the lace in place and the roses as well – this stuff is like the cardmakers super glue – love it!

And the handmade postage stamp-like embellishment…

The whole card…

The fix: I like the colors of this card, but the lace looks a little wonky here. I think I might also sneak in some pearls beneath the stamp die cut, just to balance it out a bit. I can’t be too harsh with this card though, because it always had a soft spot in my crafty heart. 😉

That’s it for today, folks! Thanks for popping in and God bless!

  1. Clare, I can't find anything wrong to change on this gorgeous card. It seems so balanced to me, I know a second look for you could make you think differently though:-)!!!
