Yes, I really did it!! I made a card! I saw it on a blog and I kind of copied it...kind of! lol I didn't have any of the things she had so that's why it's only "kind of" copied! I don't own any of those fantastic Spellbinder dies...which I love and are so gorgeous on cards. So I cut a scalloped circle with my Slice and then used my Big Bite to punch holes in it. I also don't have any of those gorgeous pearly flourishes. However, I did just pick up some long strips in a clearance bin. So I cut them all apart and tried to arrange them appropriately. I'm not that happy with all of them...but I'll get better with practice, right? Tomorrow I hope to make another card in honor of  my friend Sarah. She did a tutorial for me so I know just what to do...I hope! haha :o)
Papers:Basic Grey Jovial Collection, Recollection Cardstock;
