rejects...

I saw how Amber was having a reject blog hop, and I loved the idea! I sent several cards this time to Paper Crafts call for cards for their "Go To Sketches" issue, many of which I really liked at the time. Unfortunately, none of them got picked up. I try not to get too bothered about it each time, but it's still disappointing. Anyway, I thought it was a really fun idea for all of us to show off some of those cards that didn't get picked.

Here is one of mine:

I used a lots of Papertrey stamps on this one. I really liked how the lacy pieces on sides turned out. I layered the polka dots and flourishes, then inked it lots with distress ink. I also pulled out one my border punches that I hadn't used in a while. This turned out a lot more vintage-y than any of the other cards I sent in, or even most cards I make.
Anyway, thanks for stopping by! I was glad to get a chance to share some of my "rejects". Oh, the card shared here was also one of my "rejects" lol. sure to check out all the other cards everyone is linking up.  There are SO many beautiful ones!

  2. This is STUNNING! I love the subtle softness of the text background, and the inking on the edge panels. Thanks for the inspiration!
