A True Friend

Hello! Happy Tuesday!  Since we celebrated labor day here in the states yesterday, this is going to be one of those weeks that I am always a day off!  YES, I had to double check the day before typing that!

Well, today I have a card to share that I have worked on little by little.  I was trying to play along in the Moxie Fab Challenge: The Asymmetry Challenge.  In doing so,  I discovered that when you create a design that happens to turn out asymmetrical, that is one thing....but trying to create something asymmetrical is quite another.   I started off in several different directions but finally went with this design.   I like that the sentiment is in black to draw your eye toward it, with only a few other small details on the card being black to keep your eyes focused on the important part :). Otherwise, every other element was in 12 different positions before they were finally glued in their final place.  

Supplies: stamps- My Favorite Sentiments (My Favorite Things);  cardstock- Ivory (Gina K Designs);  Patterned paper- Escape Collection (Little Yellow Bicycle); baker's twine- Ocean (The Twinery); sewing machine; ink- tea dye distress ink (Ranger), Memento tuxedo black (Tsukineko); ribbon-Offray; flower and pin- Wild Orchid; rhinestones- Recollections (Michael's).

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

HA! You are right - when it comes together it works -- when you work at it, it is a struggle! :) Love your end result for sure though~ :)

Oh! It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who can rearrange a card a dozen times before deciding what works best!

Although, I think I could have rearranged until the cows came home on this one, and never reached your level! This turned out fabulous!

Wonderful card, Cammie! No matter what a difficult time you had, it turned out great! I'm going to be off this week by two days. Tomorrow will be Monday for me since we just got back from visiting out son in North Carolina. Short week at work! Yeah!
