You’re My First Mate

Best Mate

I entered a card chop contest similar to Chopped from the Food Network.  I received the paper ingredients in the mail and I had to design something from the products.

was allowed to add my own embellishments and I added two small rhinestones.  I’ll let y’all know if I win after the cards are judged this week.  Wish me luck!

Lesson Learned: It’s okay to tear up your paper… LoL.  I laugh because I tore the heck out of the Tea Lace Paper Doily as I intertwined the Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon.  But you know what?  Since there are NO mistakes in card making, it looks like it the tears were meant to be that way.  Wouldn’t you agree?  Please leave your comment below.  I love reading them! =)
