This card is a bit more ornate than I usually do, and I'm a bit nervous about it. I usually do more plain and tailored type cards, but I need to break loose! This is a large card - it measures 6.50 x 6.50 inches. I love the paper and colors, but I think I may have gone a bit overboard with the embellishments. What ya think? ANYHOW, it was for a challenge over at Just Manolia, following the above layout. I love the cards the ladies do over there. Since I am doing Autumn cards I wanted to keep on that track, and I can send it as a Thanksgiving card. Paper is from "Me & My Big Ideas"pack, cut oval with SCAL and added all the goodies from my stash.


  1. This card turned out perfectly! I love all the fall embellishments! I'm like you and feel more comfortable with the plain and simple cards! The image is adorable. Great job on the sketch.

  2. Oh Joanne I love it, definately NOT too many embellies. It is good to break out of our comfort zone once in a while and you have done a great job. Just love the colours!

  6. Mahalo ladies! The encouragement means so much, it helps strive for more experiments with new styles. I love the "full" look of so many cards, but I have a hard time creating them. They always end up looking too over done. Hugs to all!

  7. Gorgeous card, love the colours & i don't think you can ever have too many embelishments.
