Kioshi Thank You



Loved the sketch, but the tags gave me grief so I subbed in a bow as I just couldn't make tags work.  Now that I'm looking at my card, I realized I also ran my ribbon behind the circle instead of over it...that will teach me not to double check the sketch while making the card.  Hoping my issues fall under artistic license versus not following the sketch!

I loooove this Kioshi paper by Basic Grey which I found on clearance at an LSS.  May have to go back for a few more sheets as it is wonderful with brown, blue and moss.  I actually messed up when I used this paper too as I was supposed to  have the back side of this pattern on the smaller panel but accidentally glued it down on the wrong side!  It was one of those card making days, I tell you!   Ever have those?!  Good thing is the highlight in all this is the fact I had fun playing with my Verve stamps and nothing could mess that part up :) 

Off to see if I have better luck with the rest of my day's duties LOL!

These are just your colors, aren't they, with the brown and green? Very soothing. Love that big "U".

Love your card and I think the bow is a great substitute for the tags. Love the BG papers. TFS

Your commentary also makes me giggle! Just like the thoughts that sometimes go through my head when I finish a card.
I think your take on the sketch is wonderful! Great choice of colors from the beautiful patterned paper.

Absolutely lovely, Marisa! I know that Kioshi was intended as a "spring" collection, but your use here looks spot on for fall--great job!

Oh my goodness Marisa!! This is super fun and cute!! I LOVE how you stamped the word "you" on the letter "u"!!! So clever and fabulous!! If you knew how many times I glued somethin' down without thinkin' and realized too late that I messed up....*sigh*...too many to list for sure!! But your card is gorgeous. Love how it turned out!

LOVE the fallish colours and you know it takes a lot to make me say "love" and "fall" together :D lol That sweet butterfly does a stand up job of substitution :) I almost missed this card!! Power was out at the school, so I didn't have my morning coffee over blog reading before work!! Came on around 9:30...the kids thought it was cool :) LOL HOpe your "duties" went well and that the dd is feeling like one of the gang at school now :) Your new phone sounds fabulous!! I still have the old flip style as I don't text...I'm old school!! haha!!
